Join us today for the CBC Sing-In Charity Drive

Today is CBC's 35th Annual Sing-In at the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul and Bourgie Hall in downtown Montreal.

Experience your favourite carols in spectacular arrangements for choir, organ, brass and percussion — and sing along with the audience of 1,500 that fills the church every year.

The evening will be recorded for broadcast on Christmas Day across Canada and around the world.

CBC Radio 2's Ben Heppner will be there to host this year's concert. The lineup includes organist Jonathan Oldengarm, conductor Jordan de Souza, soprano Aline Kutan, the Sing-In Brass and the excellent choir of the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul.

For those outside Montreal, the CBC Christmas Sing-In will be available for streaming at as of Dec. 10, and you can tune in to the Christmas Day broadcast hosted by Ben Heppner on Dec. 25 at 9 a.m. (9:30 a.m. NT) on CBC Radio 2 and 12 p.m. (12:30 p.m. NT) on CBC Radio One.

Admission is free (doors open at 2 p.m.) and donations will be collected for the NDG Food Depot.
