If you love good music and the Christmas season, then here's a unique opportunity to welcome in the holidays. Come to the "Messiah" Community Sing-Along Sunday, December 15 at 3 PM and sing Handel's "Messiah" choruses under the direction of Dr. Lonnie McCalister, Lee University's former dean of the the School of Music.
The event will take place at the Chattanooga First Seventh-day Adventist church, 7450 Standifer Gap Road. This all-denominational event is free and offered as a community service. It's a unique opportunity for audience participation in what has become the musical hallmark of the season. An offering will be taken.
The event includes a chamber orchestra, harpsichord, and professional soloists. Chattanooga's greatest cookie bar will follow the program.
Nearly 400 people attend the Sing-Along yearly. Bring your own score; a limited number of chorus books are available on loan for the event.
