Sing along with Vox Musica

Experience the glory of Handel's Messiah and sing along with the Vox Musica Choir, conducted by Glenn Klassen, on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Augustine's Church.

Vox Musica encourages all fellow community vocalists and the audience to sing together in an evening of fun, light-hearted entertainment.

"This is a first for Vox Musica," says Carolyn Speakman, president, Vox Musica Choral Society. "The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra performs Handel's Messiah every other year, and with this being an off-year for the symphony, we decided to present the Messiah in a different way.

"Sing-Along Messiah is aimed at singers who want to sing the Messiah, but don't have the time or long-term commitment to rehearse. People have two choices for getting involved. They can register to sing on stage with Vox Musica during the evening performance or can sing-along sitting in the audience."

Talented local vocalists perform the solo sections of the Messiah, with Alan Young serving as the accompanist for the evening.

For those who want to join the choir for the event, they can register online at and attend the one rehearsal on Dec. 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. A $10 registration fee, which can be paid at the rehearsal, helps cover expenses and fund future choral events in Lethbridge.

"We are only performing the Christmas portion and Halleluiah Chorus," says Speakman. "While hardly a polished performance, we do promise it will be a lot of fun."

Tickets for audience members are available for $10 at Long & McQuade, located at 323 – 8th St. S. or by calling 403-380-2130.
