Advent at St. John's

12/10 at 10:30 a.m. - Lessons and Carols
Modeled after the King’s College Cambridge, Festival of Lessons and Carols, this special service retells the story of Christ’s birth through both scripture and music. Accompanied by organ and chamber orchestra, the St. John’s Chancel Choir and Choral Scholars will be singing music from many ages and genres. From the masterworks of Handel, Haydn, and Saint-Saens to music from the American Spiritual tradition interwoven with familiar carols, this service is sure to bring joy to your Christmas season.
