Bring your joyous voices for a Community Sing-Along


CHATTANOOGA – If you love good music and the Christmas season, then here’s a unique opportunity to welcome in the holidays. Come to the “Messiah” Community Sing-Along Sunday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m. and sing Händel’s “Messiah” choruses under the direction of Dr. Lonnie McCalister, Lee University’s former dean of the School of Music.

The event will take place at the Chattanooga First Seventh-day Adventist Church, 7450 Standifer Gap Road. This Chattanooga-area all-denominational event is free and is offered as a community service. This is a unique opportunity for audience participation in what has become the musical hallmark of the season. An offering will be taken.
The event includes a chamber orchestra and professional soloists. Soloists are Cynthia Johnson, soprano; Ian Hassevoort, soprano; Andrea Dismukes, contralto; James Frost, tenor; and Tony Deaton, bass. Refreshments will follow the program.

Nearly 400 people attend the Sing-Along each year. Bring your own score; a limited number of chorus books are available on loan for the event. For more information, call (423) 605-2468.
Driving directions: At intersection of Gunbarrel and Shallowford Road, take Gunbarrel north to roundabout. Church entrance is about 1/4 mile farther on right.
