Yesterday at Yale’s Battell Chapel, I had entirely too much fun, at the community sing through of Messiah, by Handel.
Battell Chapel was built in 1876, and it seats 1100 people, including the balcony, and yesterday, that joint was packed! Packed with singers of all ages, proficiency, and musicianship.
The absolutely wonderful Yale Symphony Orchestra, was conducted by a few different conductors, from the Yale School of Music, and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, as were the soloists.
If you missed it, put it on you calendar for next year. Even if you just go to listen to it. I guarantee you will leave Battell with your feet a few feet off the ground.
