Canceled: Annual Festival of Lessons and Carols

December 05, 2021, 8:00 PM
Cannon Memorial Chapel

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and guests, we regrettably cancel the 2021 Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols scheduled for December 5. The Department of Music and Office of the Chaplaincy aspire to offer a Lessons and Carols service of the highest quality and meaning for all those involved. We are not able to do so this year while ensuring the health and safety of participants and congregants. Large-scale singing, choral and congregational, is especially risky during COVID. We are hopeful for the return of this sacred tradition in 2022.

Conductor Jeffrey Riehl leads the singers of Schola Cantorum and Women’s Chorale in a joyous candlelight Christmas Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in the tradition of King’s College, Cambridge. Prelude music begins 30 minutes before each service.
