More Information


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.

“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.

A team of four professional singers from the Chorale performs the solo roles while the rest of the Chorale takes the night off.

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_._
