Walt Disney Concert Hall plays host to a selection of holiday concerts that are as unique as the world-famous building's facade. First up, there's The Blind Boys of Alabama belting out rousing and spiritual renditions of Christmas carols. A little further into the season, the exquisite singers of Chanticleer share their repertoire, ranging from Medieval/Renaissance to contemporary. And for a finale with a bang, celebrate New Years Eve with Sergio Mendes and Sheila E., plus Brazilian dancers, at Carnival at the Hall. Learn More

I have been attending the Messiah Sing-A-Long for years, not every year, but most. This was my first time at the Disney Hall. If you have attended them at the Dorothy Chandler, you know how wonderful of an experience it is to be in a theater of thousands, all singing. Disney Hall is like Dorothy Chandler on steroids. Instead of voices all facing one direction, it's singers in the round. The acoustics is fantastic. I'm glad for the change in venue and plan on attending again next year. The orchestra and solo singers were wonderful, but the magic comes from the audience.
<p>The Los Angeles Master Chorale presented its first Messiah Sing-Along 28 years ago, helping to pioneer the format. An unqualified success since the beginning, the Chorale has made the event an annual holiday tradition. Scores of would-be singers from across the Southland – and those happy to simply observe – converge on Disney Hall to belt out what is no doubt one of the greatest hits of all times.</p>
<p>“It is so much fun to conduct the audience,” says Gershon. “We get some very talented singers in the hall, but lots of folks come just to enjoy the spirit of the evening and Handel’s beautiful music. Anything goes!” Scores are available for sale at the door.</p>
<p>A team of four professional singers from the Chorale performs the solo roles while the rest of the Chorale takes the night off.
</p> For the December 15 Sing-Along, the Chorale members singing the solo roles are Margaurite Mathis-Clark, soprano; Michele Hemmings,alto; James Callon, tenor; and Steve Pence, bass.
