Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols
December 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pmFree
Brevard College presents this annual event featuring the college’s concert choir and chamber singers. The service follows in the tradition of the longstanding ceremony held at King’s College in Cambridge, England, where the festival was introduced 100 years ago by a former army chaplain as a response to World War I. It alternates Biblical readings chronicling the prophecy and birth of Christ with carols that illuminate a part of the previous reading. The ceremony is free and open to the public.
