Chorale, sponsor of the Messiah Sing this Sunday, Dec. 6:

"The Messiah Sing starts at 4 pm.  It's general seating and we expect
a crowd, so it would be wise to be there by no later than 3:45 or a
little earlier if you want good seats.
You can get tickets in advance on-line at:  (search by West Village Chorale &
date) or buy them at the door - which will take longer so you'd be wise to
be there early enough.
Look forward to seeing you there!"

convenient to West Fourth Street subway station, also #1 stop at
Christopher St., #6 stop at Astor Place."
