July 9, 2021: Due to the ongoing COVID situation, both nationally and locally, our performance venue of St. Johnís Episcopal Church in downtown Boulder remains closed to large, unmasked, gatherings; especially with respect to activities like singing. At the moment, the best estimates that the church leaders have is that perhaps the restriction on large groups of singers might be lifted at the end of November, perhaps in time for Thanksgiving. Or possibly in time for Christmas. Thus, the performance dates for the next Messiah Sing-Along remain uncertain. And it is almost certain that any early choir rehearsals will not happen as usual starting in early September. And in a very abbreviated timeline, they may not happen until early December. Please watch this site for further updates. Better yet, sign up for our email and/or 'Like' our Facebook Page.

The Boulder Messiah Chorale and Orchestra has performed Handel's Messiah every year since 1983, under the leadership of Robert Arentz. The performances are community "sing-alongs," with professional soloists, a full orchestra, and with an amateur chorus to provide a core of support for the singing.

Robert Arentz founded the Boulder Messiah Chorale and Orchestra in 1983, out of a desire to provide the Boulder community with a sing-along rendition of Handel's most beloved work, Messiah. The sing-along was founded on a principle of openness - everyone is welcome in the choir, and everyone is welcome in the performance. As an audience member you are not required to sing, but you are certainly invited to sing.

The Messiah Sing-Along is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling holiday experiences in Boulder. Please join us at one of our annual holiday performances. Subscribe to our mailing list.
