Come celebrate 30 years of Music Center’s annual Messiah Sing/Play Along, director by Music Center founder, Janice Gockel! The Sing & Play along “Messiah” is designed for participation, not listening. Seated directly behind the orchestra, singers are invited to join together in the arias (there are no soloists) as well as the choruses. Instrumentalists are known to leave their orchestra seats to sing their favorite arias with the rest of the vocal section. The evening begins with a few carols to warm up the voices, and concludes with coffee and cookies.
Call Music Center (206) 526-8443 for more information, or to volunteer your help with event details. Music will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own parts if you have them. Any vocal edition will do (Schirmer edition is easily accessible). The orchestra plays from the Prout edition.
