Audience, orchestra and soloists 
directed by Patrick Wedd

The Sing-Along Messiah at Christ Church Cathedral, with professional soloists, an orchestra of young musicians from The Schulich Music School at McGill University, all under the uplifting direction of the marvellous Patrick Wedd, is one of the season’s great traditions in Montreal! 
The event will start with a 30-minute ‘dress rehearsal’ in which you will have the chance to practise the magnificent choruses from Handel’s oratorio accompanied by the soloists and orchestra. Following that there will be a full performance of the Christmas section of Messiah as detailed below. We very much encourage you to bring along your family and friends to enjoy this event too! 
With a sizeable orchestra, four soloists, heating, lighting, printing and publicity fees, the Sing-Along Messiah is presented at considerable cost by the Cathedral. In order to make your contribution towards covering the costs of the event, we ask you to make a suggested ‘participation donation’ of $10, which this year includes a donation of $2 to further develop the Cathedral Music Program.
Patrick writes,
“Under my leadership, the Cathedral Music Program has expanded its efforts in 2013. In addition to offering sung Evensongs on three weekday afternoons at 5:15 p.m. and two choral services on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., we have added a French Choral Eucharist on Sundays at 12:45 p.m. This marks an important and historic shift for the Cathedral, as it seeks to open its doors even wider to the community it serves.
The Cathedral Music Program is at the front and centre of these endeavours, providing scholarships for any Montreal child interested in singing at the Cathedral, and sharing our love of liturgical music and fellowship through song with our community. The music we sing is drawn from a rich choral repertoire and includes a mix of traditional and contemporary works.”
Thank you for supporting the Music Program at Christ Cathedral, and we look forward to meeting you at this year’s Sing-Along Messiah on Saturday 14th December, 5pm.
