Can’t get enough of the “Messiah”? Love to sing all those fun sixteenth-note scales and belt out “Hallelujah”? Head down to the Washington Center in Olympia next Monday for a free “Messiah” Sing-Along courtesy of the Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia.

The event, sponsored by R. L. Ray Violin Shop and the Washington Center, features conductor John Welsh and guest conductors Claudia Simpson-Jones and Terrance Shaw, with guest soloists and choir and orchestra taken from community groups such as the Olympia Chamber Orchestra, the Olympia Choral Society and Opera Pacifica. Music will be provided (though you can bring your own if you’re really hard-core); excerpts include the choruses “And the Glory,” “For Unto Us” and “Hallelujah,” plus favorite arias, the overture and the pastoral symphony (just to give everyone a vocal break.)

The “Messiah” Sing-Along is at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 20 at the Washington Center, 512 Washington St. SE, Olympia. Free. 360-561-2080, studentorchestras.org, www.washingtoncenter.org
