Come Sing Messiah
Performance at 8:00pm
Every year CAMMAC’s Ottawa-Gatineau Chapter invites the public to participate in a performance of the great ‘Messiah’ oratorio by G.F. Handel. The event, which has become known under the name ‘Come Sing Messiah’, takes place on the first Friday in December. It always draws a capacity crowd of over 700 singers and an audience of 300. The people singing in the choir are supported by professional musicians making up the rest of the cast, i.e., the orchestra musicians, the organist, soloists and the conductor. Over its long history this concert has become an important part of the community’s Christmas season.
$10 for singers, $25 for audience members (please see the CAMMAC website for full details)
Available online or at the following locations:
- Book Bazaar, 417 Bank at Frank
