Messiah Sing Along
The Messiah Sing-Along is a collaborative event presented by Family & Children’s services (F&CS) and the Guelph Chamber Choir to provide a relaxed shorter version of this much loved seasonal Musical score. The concert provides opportunities for singers of all ages and talents to sing the work’s popular choruses with the Choir who will be seated among the audience.
Instead of a ticket purchase, donations from each person attending will be accepted at the door; the suggested amount is $20. Donations support the Children’s First Fund which has been established by F&CS for programs and initiatives that provide struggling children, youth and families in our community access to resources and supports they would otherwise not have.
“This is a community effort that unites the finest music with the best of the season’s Spirit – the gift of a brighter future for young people who are doing their best to improve their situation by getting a good post-secondary education.”

Messiah’s Connection to Child Welfare
Did you know that Messiah’s popularity was founded in the number of performances Handel staged during the latter years of his life to raise funds for the child welfare organization of his day?
