Messiah Sing-Along, Sunday December 10


Come sing Handel’s Messiah with us!

Perhaps you’ve already sung Part 1 of Handel’s Messiah, as well as the famous “Hallelujah” Chorus”, maybe you’ve only just dreamed of doing it… Well, your chance to sing, or to sing again, this wonderful work can become real each year on one Sunday in December in the American Cathedral in Paris, 23 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris.


The Sing-Along this year is on Sunday, December 10, at 15h — our 24th time doing it!

*** NEW this year: come join us also at our rehearsal the Monday before the Sing Along!

All you have to do is bring your ticket already purchased, and join us in the rehearsal on Monday, December 4, at 7;30pm at the American Cathedral.


What is a “sing-along”? You, the public (supported by the members of the Paris Choral Society seated amongst you in the Cathedral), get to sing if you want. Maybe you already can sing the whole of the Messiah, or maybe you can sing only bits and pieces of it, or maybe none of it. Who cares? Your pleasure will come from participating. Or if you wish, simply listening. Why not? Just imagine the thrill of being among 400 singers!

For an idea of the fun that this can be, take a look at the spontaneous fun we had during our first Flashmob when hundreds of shoppers were enthralled as we spontaneously sang the “Hallelujah Chorus” on 16 November 2013, in a Parisian shopping center.

Each year, Zachary Ullery, the Musical Director of the PCS, and Director of Music of the American Cathedralalong with the Cathedral Organist, Andrew Dewar, lead professional soloists and you, the public, in the Cathedral for the mutual enjoyment of all.

No reservation is required for the Sing-Along. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door the day of the performance. If you do not have a score, don’t worry, you can rent one at the door for €5 – or, better still, buy one for €10 at the door and then you’ll be ready for every year!
