Hello Music Lovers,

UUCB has been hosting a sing-along of Handel’s glorious Messiah for decades. Indeed, it seems likely that the Bay Area tradition of singers throughout the community joining in this great masterpiece started at UUCB. For more than 50 years, people have been coming to enjoy singing great music in a festive atmosphere.
We have a  professional orchestra and soloists and the entire audience joins in singing Handel’s fantastic choruses. There are usually 200 to 300 people who join in the joy of this music. Many are excellent singers and some just like to hum along. Everyone is welcome to come and sing, whether they think of themselves as a singer or not. You do not need to know how to read music, you do not need to know the score perfectly. (There are many practice resources available if you would like to tune up before the sing-along.) We will have scores for loan at the event.
Before the concert begins and during the intermission you can even do a little Christmas shopping or buy a substantial snack and hot cider, coffee or tea. Doors open at 5 p.m.; sing-along begins at 6.
Come, join the fun, ring in the holidays with great music – Hallelujah!

Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students.  No one turned away for lack of funds.
