Event description

Description

The 2017-2018 season opens with two different presentations – the traditional Festival of Lessons and Carols which includes carols and readings from the Bible as well as a more secular presentation featuring modern holiday choral arrangements woven around classic Christmas poetry. Both concerts feature the beloved A Ceremony of Carols, which British composer Benjamin Britten wrote during World War II while he was crossing the Atlantic in 1942 aboard a cargo ship and perfectly captures the mystery and majesty of the season. This work is accompanied by harp and presented by candlelight, which is sure to be a memorable part of your holiday season.

  • I Wonder as I Wander, John Jacob Niles, arr. Steve Pilkington
