In place of the annual Messiah Community Festival, singers are invited to meet on the front lawn of the Peterborough Unitarian Church for a pop-up performance of two of Handel’s famous choruses.

The 10-minute outdoor sing of “And the Glory” and “Hallelujah” is set to be held Saturday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. There is no rehearsal involved. Jim Sharrock will direct the singers, accompanied by Cheryl Sharrock on keyboard.

The church building will not be open. All are welcome; no registration required.
