Unity Shoppe Announces Annual Handel’s ‘Messiah’ Sing-Along

The 35th annual Messiah Sing-Along will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015, in the First Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of State and Constance.  

Phillip McLendon will conduct this performance of George Frederick Handel's choral masterpiece Messiah.

James Mooy has organized the orchestra, which includes members of the Santa Barbara City College Symphony. The following four outstanding local soloists will also perform: Celeste Tavera, soprano; Adelaide Sinclair, alto; Grey Brothers, tenor and Michael Shasberger, bass. Steve Hodson is the organist.  

That covers everything and everybody except the chorus. That's because the chorus is you — the audience!  

Tickets are $10 and will benefit Unity Shoppe. Advance tickets and music scores (bring your own) are available at Chaucer's Book Store in Loreto Plaza. Tickets will also be available at the door.

It's great music and great fun for a great cause, so, come and make a joyful noise. Raise your voice on high!

Unity Shoppe is a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation that encourages self-sufficiency and independence by providing education and the necessities of life to families, children, seniors and persons with disabilities during periodic times of crisis.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
