Sing Messiah with The Tabernacle Choir!
Here is your personal invitation to sing Messiah with The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square!
On Friday, March 26, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. (mountain) music lovers around the world, in the comfort and safety of their own homes, will be using the internet to join their voices with The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square to sing Handel’s beloved oratorio Messiah.
(You can sing as loudly or softly as you want in your own home!)
The event will be a wonderful world gathering of believers and music lovers celebrating the birth, life, death and Resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ, with a performance by the Choir and Orchestra with special renowned guest soloists. It will also be a prelude to Easter week activities by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, culminating in a special Easter General Conference.
ABOUT THE MESSIAH STREAM
Filmed during the live 2018 Messiah concert in the Salt Lake Tabernacle, the full Messiah stream has been refreshed with new graphics and will run 2 hours and 30 minutes. As in 2020, the online streams on the Choir’s YouTube channel and Facebook page will be enhanced with online chat featuring musical and scriptural insights from Dr. Luke Howard, BYU professor of music history.

WHAT WILL I NEED TO SING ALONG?
A good internet connection and a place to gather around your television or digital devices. (You may need speakers strong enough so that anyone joining you can still hear while they are singing.)
A choral music score of Handel’s Messiah. Although the 2016 Mack Wilberg edition of Messiah score is not published, there are many good options. One that many people use is the G. Schirmer Messiah score:
A free G. Schirmer Messiah choral score is available in pdf format (216 pages) that is available to download to your digital devices and save. (Please be aware that public domain/copyright laws vary from country to country, so this copy may not be free of known copyright restrictions in all jurisdictions.)
If you want to purchase your own choral score, here is a link to purchase the G. Schirmer score on Amazon.com.
Of course, if you just want to listen and enjoy, you are welcome to do that too!
