A Festival of Lessons and Carols
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is an Elmhurst College tradition that bridges the season of Advent and Christmastide. In the decorated Chapel, lessons with hymns and carols enhance God's message of love to reconcile humanity and heal all of creation. Candles are lit to remind us that "In Thy light, we see light." Lessons and Carols consists of nine Scripture readings, combined with choral music performed by the Elmhurst College Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and Women's Chorus.
