Dr. Thomas King, professor of music, conducted a first Opera Sing-a-Long in September in St. Louis. The idea was patterned after the popular Messiah sing-a-longs.

Several in attendance felt like they had finally fulfilled a dream of singing in an opera, King said.

King is an experienced opera singer, having performed more than 500 times on the operatic stage, both in universities and professionally in the U.S. and in Europe.
