Buskirk Chumley Theater

Cardinal Stage presents Disney’s “Newsies” December 12 – 29 at the Buskirk Chumley. Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this high-energy musical soars with rousing dance numbers and memorable songs. When New York publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst try to increase their profits by taking advantage of hard-working newsboys, the charismatic Jack Kelly steps up to lead a band of young “newsies” to strike for what’s right. This Tony Award-winning musical, based on the popular Disney film, is toe-tapping fun for the entire family!

Messiah Sing-along

St. Mark’s United Methodist Church
https://www.chambersingers.info/concerts-all/fall2019messiah

Bloomington Chamber Singers will present its 31st annual Messiah Sing-along on Sunday, December 15 at 3:00 pm at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church, 100 N. State Rd. 46, Bloomington. This FREE Bloomington holiday tradition draws hundreds of area singers (and listeners) who come together to sing part one and the “Hallelujah Chorus” of Handel’s beloved oratorio, Messiah. Scores will be available for those who do not own one. The singers will be led by BCS Music Director Dr. Gerald Sousa.

Messiah is well loved not just as sacred music, but for its challenging choruses and beautiful solos. Singers of all levels and backgrounds come together each year for this wintertime tradition. Beyond the “Hallelujah Chorus,” beloved movements include “Comfort Ye, My People,” “And He Shall Purify,” “Glory to God,” and many more. Attendees are welcome to sing along or simply listen to the choruses and arias, and enjoy recitatives performed by members of the Bloomington Chamber Singers.

Admission is free. BCS invites attendees to bring a nonperishable food item for donation to a local food pantry. A limited number of scores will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own. For additional information, visit www.chambersingers.info.
