Come and sing

A "come and sing" event offers people who enjoy singing the opportunity to form a temporary choir ("scratch choir") to rehearse and/or perform choral music, often within a single day.

These events are ideal for people who would otherwise be unable to commit to regular membership of a choir, or who wish to try choral singing for the first time. Usually the music is familiar to those who attend – e.g. Handel's Messiah, Fauré's Requiem, Verdi's Requiem – though the programme may be chosen to coincide with a festival or other special occasion or time of year or day (e.g. evensong, Nine Lessons and Carols).

"Come and sing" events seem particularly popular in the United Kingdom.[1]
