Handel's Messiah!

You are invited to the…
“Do-It-Yourself Messiah”

Civic Opera House in Chicago
Saturday, December 22
2:00pm Performance

For the last several years many of us have participated in the annual Do-It-Yourself Messiah held at the Civic Opera House in Chicago. This performance is for those who can, and will, lift up their voices as choir members singing through one of the greatest choral masterpieces in history.

There is a full orchestra and four professional soloists on stage.
The choir is the entire audience at the Civic Opera House.... and YOU are invited to be a member of this choir! This is quite an amazing event!

Tickets for the event itself are no-charge. But, tickets “sell-out” immediately… So, be sure to follow these instructions:

Thursday, November 15, at 8:00am is the time to be logged in to order your tickets for the 2007 Do-It-Yourself Messiah performance! Visit this link for information on how to order tickets. (If you've requested tickets through Ticketmaster before, make sure you know your username and password for quick log in this time!!) And be sure to be there at: 8:00am sharp! (8:05 may be too late!)

[Update: the website now has 10:00am listed as the time to order tickets. I think you should still check at 8:00, but they might not be available until a little later.]

Saturday, December 22, at 2:00pm is the performance of the Messiah that we will be attending. So if you want to come with us, be sure to order tickets for that performance!

Since it is (for the first time) an afternoon performance, we'll be making a whole day of it and going out for some Chicago-style pizza afterwards and taking in a few sights in Chicago... We love having out-of-town-ers join us for the weekend, so just drop us a line if you think you might be able to make the trip this year and we'll get the rest of our details to you.

For those of you who haven't heard of this event before, (or if you just want to have fun looking at old pictures) you can visit a couple of previous posts Here and Here.

Questions? Please call or email us! We hope you can join us!
