Raise your voice at the 11th annual Credo Music Messiah Sing-Along at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16 at Finney Chapel, 90 North Professor St., Oberlin.

This holiday tradition, complete with soloists, is presented free of charge.

An offering will be taken to benefit Neighborhood Alliance‚Äôs Haven Center, which provides services to local homeless families. Each year this event generates several thousand dollars to support the life-changing work of Credo’s charity partners.

Vocalists of all ages and types are welcome to sing along with their favorite Messiah choruses under the direction of Credo artistic director Peter Slowik.

Attendees are encouraged to take their own scores, or they can be rented at the concert for $5.

Singers and the orchestra supporting the performance will be made of members of the Oberlin Conservatory Orchestra and Credo alumni.

Credo is an expanding network of musicians dedicated to making the world a better place through the gift of music.

Credo musicians will be in residence again in Oberlin for two weeks in July, followed by a week in Chicago. A finale performance at Symphony Center July 28 will feature acclaimed violinist Rachel Barton Pine and Credo festival attendees.
