From Wikipedia: “Messiah was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.”
The sing-along will consist of Part 1 plus the famous Hallelujah chorus. Soloists for the event will be Amy Horst, Gerdine Markus, Ian McMillan and Barry Brandes.
