This is the first of what I hope will be a long tradition of sing-along Messiahs in London. I don’t know about you, but I’m not always ready for a Messiah in November or early December. I want to enjoy and rejoice in one quite close to Christmas.
So, together with First St. Andrew’s United Church, my own group The London Music Machine, and a number of volunteers from various choirs in London, we are offering a near-Christmas community sing-along Messiah.
My goal is to bring choirs and people from across the city together for an evening of beautiful music and singing together. To celebrate the season and each other in song is something that we don’t do enough. I mean to help change that.
I will be among the soloists, who all come from The London Music Machine. I hope that you will come, sing, enjoy cookies and cider, be uplifted, and perhaps find something magical and meaningful this Christmas holiday.
8 PM, December 21, 2018.
