Weather alert: May Festival’s ‘Messiah’ community sing postponed

Cincinnati May Festival

The Cincinnati May Festival has announced that its community sing event, scheduled for Saturday Jan. 13 in Music Hall, has been postponed due to the weather. The event will now take place on Jan. 20.

Here are the details:

Have you always wanted to sing with the world-famous May Festival Chorus? The chorus is hosting a free Community Sing at Music Hall with conductor Robert Porco and the May Festival Chorus, now slated for Jan. 20, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the chorus rehearsal hall at Music Hall.

The May Festival seeks singers of all voice types to join an all-new May Festival Community Chorus, a volunteer ensemble that will perform with the May Festival Chorus and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in a complete performance of Handel’s Messiah on May 26, 2018.

Under the direction of Principal Conductor Juanjo Mena, the May Festival Community Chorus will sing selected choruses.

Participation in the Community Sing is not required, but recommended, for those who wish to join the Community Chorus. You must be available for six rehearsals leading up to your May debut with the festival. Check this website for times, dates and registration.
