St. Mark’s Sanctuary:
Every Christmas season for the past twenty-five years, the Bloomington Chamber Singers and chamber orchestra, under the direction of our own Gerry Sousa, have presented a Messiah Sing-Along. If you love to sing Messiah, or if you’ve always wanted to try to sing Messiah, or if you’ve always wanted to listen as several hundred people give their all working their way through Handel’s amazing score—well, this is your chance! Singers who own a score should bring it to the reading. If you don’t own a score, a limited number of scores available for loan or purchase. The sanctuary seats will be marked clearly so that sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses can sit together in sections. And, ample room will be provided for listeners as well. Admission is free and open to the public. The Chamber Singers ask that you please bring one or more canned food items for the Community Kitchen.
