Tuesday, December 8 | 7pm
Singalong Messiah is back this year, as a free livestream! Join us from the comfort of your home and sing along to some of your favourite choruses from the perennial holiday favourite, Handel’s Messiah. We’ll be safely gathering a small group of singers from our staff and they’ll be led by Maestro Leslie Dala and pianist Stephen Smith. They’ll be singing live and you’re invited to join in. Or, pour a glass of your favourite beverage and have a listen!
The livestream will be available on the day of the show on our YouTube channel!
It is free to join, but we encourage you to consider showing your appreciation by making a donation to one of our favourite charities in the giving spirit of the holidays.

The selection we will be singing are:
And the Glory
And he shall purify
For unto us
Glory to God
His Yoke is easy
Behold the Lamb
And with his stripes
All we like sheep
He Trusted in God
Lift up your heads, o ye gates
The lord gave the word
Let us break their bonds
Since by man
Worthy is the lamb
