There is no snow yet on the Brandeis campus, but “snow flakes” were falling inside the Shapiro Campus Center Thursday.

During the "Hallelujah chorus," the culmination of the "Messiah Sing" performance by the Brandeis Wellesley Orchestra and the Brandeis University Chorus, snowy white confetti fell from the catwalk onto the crowd below.

"Messiah Sing," which has become an annual Brandeis tradition, provides audience members the opportunity to sing along to a performance of George Frideric Handel's oratorio “Messiah." The performance was led by Neal Hampton, who prepared the Brandeis-Wellesley Orchestra, and Robert Duff, conductor of the Brandeis University Chorus, who conducted both ensembles and gave a brief talk before the performance. Solos were performed by Mark Kagan, Nancy Armstrong and Emily Marvosh.
