Hundreds of students, faculty and staff crowded the Shapiro Campus Center on a snowy Tuesday for the Messiah Sing, a beloved annual holiday tradition.

Crowds flowed out of the atrium and onto the stairs and balconies to hear the Brandeis-Wellesley Orchestra, led by Neal Hampton, and Brandeis University Chorus, led by James Olesen, perform George Frideric Handel’s oratorio, “Messiah,” with soloists Nancy Armstrong, Jason McStoots and Mary Gerbi. The community was also invited to join in the sing-along.
