Friday, December 23, 2011 - mark your calendars!

Please plan your holidays to include singing along with the Rising Generation Youth Chorus in our performance of Handel's glorious MESSIAH!
What is a sing-along? an informal performance in which the audience serves as the unrehearsed chorus, supported by a carefully prepared core group. Orchestra and soloists are usually professionals, though their services are donated for charity benefits.

It is reported that Handel himself used the oratorio for a Foundling Hospital to "raise funds for the maintenance and education of . . . the children." All proceeds and donations from our concert will benefit the Judevine Center for Autism - and the families they serve that deal with the effects of autism.

The musical score: Feel free to bring your own, or we will have Schirmer scores available at the door for cost ($8.00). Of course, you can just sit and listen, if you so desire, but most will want to sing-along!

We will be presenting the Christmas portion of the work (PART I; the Hallelujah Chorus; and Worthy is the Lamb/Amen).

The location:
Washington University Music Center
560 Trinity Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63130
