Singers:  Join us on our finale as we sing The Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah

 

A few things to know:

  1. We will sing it in the key of C, not D...not so many high notes!
  2. Great rehearsal recordings are available on-line. Just type “Hallelujah Chorus, key of C,” and your voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass)  You will find excellent tutorials so you are prepared.
  3. You may bring your own copy of the music, or contact Sarah Parker to get a copy.  Music will also be available at the performance...memorization is not required.
  4. We will have a very quick rehearsal at 6:15 p.m.  just before the performance.  Go to the lobby of the PAC & someone will be available to direct you where to go.
  5. If you can’t be at the rehearsal, but want to sing anyway, just come to the stage when asked.  
  6. You are welcome to join us in street clothes.  If you want to visually blend in with our chorus, we will be wearing all black.  
  7. Please get the word out to anyone who might want to join us.  The more, the merrier!
