Church hosts sin-along

I'm sure the headline is a typo (right?)

St. James’ Episcopal Church will host the eighth annual communitywide “Messiah Sing-Along” today at 3 p.m., under the direction of Scott Smedinghoff.

Singers of all levels and abilities are invited to participate in the informal sing-along that will include the Advent and Christmas sections of Handel’s choral masterpiece, as well as the “Hallelujah Chorus.”

There will be several soloists including the rector of the church, the Rev. Scott B. Neal, a tenor and Mark Madison, a bass.

The chorus and audience will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra of local musicians.

Even those who don’t know the whole piece but want to sing or hum during a favorite part are welcome to the free event.

A limited number of copies of the score will be available to singers. Those who have their own copies are encouraged to bring them.

Light refreshments will be served in the church hall following the event.
