St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Kent will present its eighth annual “Messiah Sing-In” Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

James Sinclair will conduct the Sherman Chamber Ensemble. The chorus will consist of members of the audience who

wish to sing. Scores will be provided.

George Frederic Handel’s “Messiah,” a monumental work for voices and orchestra, has been popular since its Dublin premiere in 1742.

This performance will feature Part One, which centers on Christ’s Nativity, and concludes with the famous “Hallelujah Chorus.”

Soprano Jennifer Tyo Oberto, alto Dana Kephart, tenor Ron M’Sadoques and bass-baritone Joseph McDonough will perform, along with Laurel Larsen on organ.

The program will be held at the 1 North Main St. church.

Tickets are $20 and free for students.
