Messiah Sing-In

Nov. 28–29



Sometimes you just feel better when you’re part of a crowd. You can let loose without fear of watchful eyes because everyone else is doing the same. The Utah Symphony will be presenting its 32nd annual performance of Messiah, a concert that encourages full audience participation in its magnificent “Hallelujah” chorus. Attendees are invited to bring their own scores and lend their voices to the show. So, if you have stage fright but have an affinity for singing, this could be the perfect setting for you.

Originally created for Easter but now a Christmas tradition, Handel’s masterpiece has been performed all over the world for more than 250 years and is considered to be one of the most famous choral works ever written. This year, Utah Opera Chorus Master Susanne Sheston will conduct the Utah Symphony Chorus (pictured) and guest vocalists Kathryn Kemp (soprano), Leah Wool (mezzo-soprano), Aaron Blake (tenor) and Brent Turner (baritone) in this musical extravaganza.

Messiah Sing-In @ Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 801-355-ARTS, Nov. 28–29, 7 p.m.
