Says an MSO press release: “Bring your “pipes” and raise a joyful noise with the MSO’s Overture Concert Organ. Join with others in an old-fashioned sing-along led by MSO Principal Organist Samuel Hutchison.
The MSO’s Free Community Christmas Carol Sing will take place in Overture Hall on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 11 a.m. this year.
The Hymn Sings and Christmas Carol Sing are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. No tickets or reservations are needed. Each event lasts 45 minutes to an hour. The hymns chosen are widely known across many traditions and lyrics are provided.
A growing Madison tradition, the Community Hymn Sings and Christmas Carol Sing are part of the MSO’s Overture Concert Organ season and are presented in partnership with Overture Center.
