Elmhurst College: Lessons and Carols Ushers in the Holiday Season


Lessons and Carols Ushers in the Holiday Season

The Elmhurst College Festival of Lessons and Carols draws together the campus and community to open a joyful and spiritual season.

This traditional celebration will take place on Wednesday, December 5, in Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel.  The College will offer two performances of celebration, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., to accommodate the popularity of this event.

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is an Elmhurst College tradition that bridges the season of Advent and Christmastide.  An elegant tradition since 1961, the Festival consists of nine Scriptural readings that tell the story of the birth of the Messiah, interspersed with choral music.

The Elmhurst College Concert Choir will perform time-honored songs to set the holiday mood and accompany each reading.
