Are you in the Christmas spirit? Well, make plans for the Do-It-Yourself Messiah in Chicago at Christmastime 2018, which takes place annually at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance (205 E. Randolph Drive near Michigan) on Monday, December 17, 2018 and Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. (click at bottom for more info). The event brings together a world-class conductor and soloists, an all-volunteer orchestra, and thousands of audience members as the chorus.
If you have never done this then DO IT THIS YEAR! The Do-It-Yourself Messiah celebrates its 43rd year of a beloved Chicago holiday tradition. 1,500 amateur choristers—you, the public—join an orchestra and world-class conductor/soloists at each performance to sing Handel’s masterpiece under the direction of Maestro Stanley Sperber. Bring your score and come sing! Not suitable for children under 6.
