Hallelujah! It’s Handel!

That’s right all you classical music lovers, the second annual Handel’s Messiah Sing-in will be held on Sunday, January 8 at the Shelter Island Presbyterian Church. This is the first Sunday after the feast of the Epiphany (Twelfth Night) and all are invited to join in singing the Choruses in the Christmas section (Part I) of the Messiah, ending with the Hallelujah Chorus.

The music begins at 3 p.m. and the group will sing from the Schirmer Edition of the Messiah. Bring a copy of the music if you have it, as there will be a limited number of copies available to share that day.

Light refreshments will follow the singing and all are welcome to start the New Year on a high note by joining in the singing of this glorious music and enjoying the fellowship of other lovers of great music. Admission is free and there’s plenty of parking.

Hallelujah!

Shelter Island Presbyterian Church is located at 32 N. Ferry Road, Shelter Island.
