Shawnigan Lake School hosts sing-along Messiah

Want to sing the Hallelujah Chorus?

For many music lovers, it isn’t Christmas until they’ve done so.

The Victoria Philharmonic Choir is performing a Sing-along Messiah, Sunday, Dec. 14 at 2.30 p.m., bringing 70 voices and the Civic Orchestra of Victoria to the beautiful chapel at Shawnigan Lake School.

Singers are asked to bring their own scores if they have them; there are a limited number available to borrow at the performance.

Conductor Peter Butterfield will lead everyone in this exciting event that will feature 12 soloists.

Some are at the beginning of their careers, like 16-year-old soprano and hopeful opera singer Julia Hensley, and some are established professionals, including mezzo-soprano Kathryn Whitney, voice teacher at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, and Vancouver-based baritone Andrew Greenwood.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Book them online from vpchoir.ca and Volume One Books (Duncan), Bucknucks Books (Valleyview), Valley Vines to Wines (Mill Bay) and Island Pharmacy (Shawnigan Lake).
