Get in the holiday spirit at popular Sing-Along Messiah Concert

December 11, 2014

Harper College's Festival Chorus will take a cue from a longstanding Chicago holiday tradition and hold its second annual Sing-Along Messiah Concert.

Similar to the International Music Foundation's annual Do-It-Yourself Messiah concert downtown, a professional orchestra will accompany both Harper's non-audition community ensemble and festive audience members in singing Handel's Messiah.

The Sing-Along will take place at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 15, at the Performing Arts Center on the College's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

Led by Director Ann Espel, the Festival Chorus is an outreach program of Harper's Continuing Education Community Music Center and partially supported by an Illinois Arts Council grant. Tickets are $12-$18 and admission is free for children 5 and under. They can be purchased at or by calling 847.925.6100.
