Handel’s “Messiah” sing-a-long

Originally posted on saccityexpress.com on April 8, 2015

City College’s music department will perform George Fredric Handel’s famous oratorio “Messiah” April 11 in the Performing Arts Center.

Handel composed “Messiah” as an offering for Easter in 1741, but the piece has since found a home during Christmas time. The lyrics include passages from Christian books, including the Bible and “Book of Common Prayer.”

Attendees are invited to sing along to such fragments as “He Shall Purify” and the iconic “Hallelujah” chorus. The event is free and doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the performance scheduled to begin at 7 p.m..
