 HOLIDAY TRADITION CONTINUES AS OLD BRIDGE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA PRESENTS ITS ANNUAL MESSIAH SING ALONG
Friday, December 16, 2016, 7:30 PM, First Baptist Church, 13600 Minnieville Road, Woodbridge
Saturday, December 17, 2016, 7:30 PM, Grace United Methodist Church, 9750 Wellington Road, Manassas


Prince William County, Virginia, November 8, 2016
– Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra ("OBCO") invites lovers of holiday music to sing along during its 2016 performances of the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah.  Under the baton of Maestro David Kirven, OBCO will provide the instrumentalists, powerful and moving solo vocalists, and trained choral "ringers".  From the comfort of their seats, the audience is encouraged to join those ringers during Choruses like "For unto Us a Child Is Born", "Glory to God", and, of course, "Hallelujah".  

"Our Messiah Sing Along is easily our most popular event" says OBCO Board President and Concertmistress, Sheyna Burt.  "One of our choral members described it as the most moving musical experience he had ever had ... there is something profound and beautiful about hundreds of people joining forces to produce this music".

Admission is free (donations accepted) and, due to popular demand, the event is being offered twice: on Friday, December 16th at First Baptist Church (13600 Minnieville Road, Woodbridge) and on Saturday, December 17th at Grace United Methodist Church (9750 Wellington Road, Manassas).
