The chance to raise your voice in song, without fear of funny looks or causing dogs to howl, and hear others doing the same is one of our favorite things about the holidays. And in a city with vocal talent spilling from every coffee shop, campus pub and church function, you’ll find opportunities to hear soul-stirring performances most every night of the season — leading to choices as difficult as tonight’s.

At Christ Church Cathedral, the acclaimed Music City Baroque ensemble, under the direction of Murray Somerville, leads a mass sing-along of Handel’s evergreen The Messiah, leaving the solos to pros — tenor Stan Warren, soprano Megan Farmer, alto Mareike Sattler and bass Grant Farmer, with Joel Treybig testing his mettle on the Baroque valveless trumpet — but inviting the assembled crowd to join in on those triumphant choruses.

At the same time, Lipscomb University’s “A Celebration of Christmas” offers an evening of holiday favorites performed by the university’s A Cappella Singers and University Singers with the Lipscomb Wind Ensemble.
