Raise your voice alongside the May Festival Chorus during Handel’s Messiah on May 26, 2018 and at our Messiah: Community Sing on January 13, 2018!

The Cincinnati May Festival seeks singers of all voice types to join the May Festival Community Chorus, a volunteer ensemble that will perform with the May Festival Chorus and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in a complete performance of Handel’s Messiah on May 26, 2018. Under the direction of Principal Conductor Juanjo Mena, the May Festival Community Chorus will sing selected choruses from Messiah. The chorus will be prepared for the performance by May Festival Director of Choruses Robert Porco. Six rehearsals will be held prior to May, including two with the May Festival Chorus.

No auditions are necessary to participate in Messiah. If you are interested in joining the May Festival Community Choir, please consult the rehearsal schedule carefully and sign up below. All rehearsals are mandatory. If you are aware in advance of unavoidable conflicts with the posted rehearsal schedule, please note those conflicts in the signup form. In all cases, participation in the concert is subject to the discretion of the Director of Choruses and the management of the May Festival.

Further details of the Messiah rehearsal schedule, including the location of the piano rehearsals, will be communicated after the number of participants is confirmed.

We invite you to join us on January 13, 2018, for a Messiah Community Sing at Music Hall with conductor Robert Porco and the May Festival Chorus. Participation in the Community Sing is not required, but recommended, for those who wish to join the Community Chorus. More information below!

Questions? Contact Matthew Swanson, Director of Special Projects for the Cincinnati May Festival, at mswanson@mayfestival.com.

The Community Sing is free and open to the public, but we do request that you RSVP in order for us to provide adequate seating and scores for all singers. Come and join us!
