Attention Singers: Don’t Miss Your Chance to Join the World's Largest Virtual “Hallelujah” Chorus

Virtual "Hallelujah" Chorus

This is the chance of lifetime! We are inviting individual singers and choirs around the world to sing in a virtual worldwide choir. YouTube star Peter Hollens and his wife, Evynne, have teamed up with us to record videos for four individual singing parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). Fans are encouraged to upload a YouTube video of themselves singing one of the four parts of the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Select singers and choral performances will be featured in the final virtual choir video with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.

Making the video

You will be able to access the sheet music and a sing-along video to help guide you through the process of making your own video. The video includes the lyrics as well as Mack Wilberg conducting to help you keep time. To access the sheet music and sing-along videos, go to virtualchoir.mormon.org. Once your video is recorded, you can upload it to YouTube, then copy the YouTube URL to the submission form in the URL above. Use #Hallelujah to tag your video. Entries will be accepted through Tuesday, March 1, 2016. The final virtual choir video will be released on Sunday, March 13, 2016.

Watch the "Hallelujah" chorus instructional and sing-along videos below the Messiah announcements.
