Since Los Angeles isn't much of a Winter wonderland, one way we try to get into the Christmas spirit is by watching some wonderful concerts by our local artists and establishments. First off is Handel's Messiah, a three hour long masterpiece (luckily they have an intermission) with theLos Angeles Master Choraleat the Disney Hall. Luckily if you can't make it tonight, there is a repeat of the program on the 15th. The exciting thing about this concert though, is it's a sing-along! After this, you can mention on your resume or biography that you performed at the Disney Hall! Now isn't that something.

The Cal Phil is back on track at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium this Saturday including a performance of the "Hallelujah Chorus" and the Nutcracker. You also get to sing-along as well, during the "Hallelujah Chorus." For the full experience (it's like getting two for one!), get there early to listen to carolers in the lobby before the concert. For those in the San Gabriel Valley, the Chorale Bel Canto will be performing on Saturday and Sunday at the Trinity Lutheran Church. The highlight of the concert is the Magnificat: Seven Carols for Christmas , unless you're there for the sing-alongs and traditional carols.

How to win a pair of tickets and show times after the jump...

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is offering a pair of tickets on LAist. The concert includes an exciting US premiere for a concerto for the marimba, and music by Strauss and Haydn. You have until Tuesday, December 9th, and the concert is this Saturday at the Brand Theatre in Glendale( with a repeat performance at Royce Hall, if you're able to buy tickets).
