Festival of Lessons and Carols: First Performance
Friday, November 30, 2018
4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is an Elmhurst College tradition that bridges the season of Advent and Christmastide.
Held 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 accompany each reading and set the holiday mood.
The College will offer two performances of the celebration, at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., to accommodate the popularity of the event. The event is free and all are welcome.
