Messiah from Scratch
A singalong fundraiser with Donald Hunt, the Emily Carr String Quartet… and YOU!
Saturday, Dec. 9, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Now’s your chance to lift your voice in song, as we present the ever-popular “Messiah from Scratch!”

Come join a team of some of Victoria’s best singers and instrumentalists and add your voice to the stirring choruses of Handel’s iconic masterpiece. “Messiah from Scratch!” distills Handel’s joyful masterpiece to its Christmas essentials for maximum fun: angels, shepherds abiding in their fields, exalted valleys, a Saviour born and, of course… a Hallelujah Chorus. Proceeds to support the cathedral music program.

Lessons and Carols for Christmas
Sunday, Dec. 17, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

A seasonal staple, the festival of lessons and carols has been celebrated at Anglican churches and cathedrals for well over 100 years. Each year, hundreds of people pack the cathedral to celebrate the season with traditional carols led by the cathedral’s choir and organ. This year, the service includes a new carol by BC composer Tobin Stokes.
