CAREFREE – ProMusica Arizona Chorale & Orchestra is collaborating with Christ the Lord Lutheran Church to present a ‘Community Sing-A-Long’ of Handel’s Messiah on Saturday, Dec. 13, 3 p.m. The holiday concert will feature renowned guest soloists, including Vernon Hartman, the lead bass baritone at the Metropolitan Opera for two decades; Amy Johnson, lead soprano with over a dozen companies, most notably New York City Opera as seen on PBS's Live from Lincoln Center; and Mary Sue Hyatt, mezzo soprano featured with L’Opera Di Firenze and Teatro Comunale.

ProMusica’s Baroque-size orchestra and 60-member chorale will be directed by guest conductor Maestro John Sikora. This sing-along presented in Carefree promises to be a unique musical experience and a perfect prelude for the holidays.

The same sponsor package is available for two people for $300.
