Reading Choral Society Presents Messiah Community Sing

Reading Choral Society is inviting the community to come and join them as they sing Handel’s Messiah on December 18th at 4pm. Everyone will be singing the Christmas portion of Messiah, including the Hallelujah Chorus. Bring your own score or borrow one from RCS for the afternoon. This will become an annual event with Reading Choral Society bringing the community in to sing Messiah with them.

Founded in 1875, the Reading Choral Society has a long and proud tradition of presenting vocal music, particularly symphonic choir masterworks, but also exploring and interpreting other genres. Under the energetic and nurturing leadership of Dr. Bier, our twelfth Music Director, the organization seeks to continue to pursue its mission to perform, foster, and advance choral music with a balance between honoring our heritage and looking to the future. Its educational programs now encompass regular performances with invited local high school and college choirs. While continuing the tradition of programming master choral works, the Society has expanded its repertory to include the more frequent performance and commissioning of new music and the exploration of more “popular” literature, like folksongs, spirituals, and musical theater.

The Reading Choral Society is comprised now, as it has always been, of dedicated semi-professional singers from all walks of life with no minimum or maximum age. Determined to present the highest caliber musical performances possible, the Society rehearses weekly in a professional atmosphere, fulfilling the lives of its members by immersing them in great music, and through RCS performances enriching and enlivening the musical life of the greater Reading community.

Suggested Donation at the door of $5-$10. No tickets are needed to attend.
