Nov. 21, 2016 - The King’s College choir, Cantores Christi Regis, will celebrate the holiday season with free public performances in December.
The 28-member group will perform two free concerts of contemporary and traditional Christmas songs, including many traditional holiday carols, such as “Carol of the Bells”, “Jingle Bells”, “O Holy Night”, “Ave Marie by Trotta”, and “O Nata Lux” by Lauridsen. The concerts will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday, Dec. 3.
In addition, the choir will perform an evening of Lessons and Carols at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7. The event is a service of Scripture and songs about the birth of Christ, and some traditional Christmas carols. Each lesson is followed by a carol that reflects the lesson’s message and a brief prayer.
All performances will be held in the J. Carroll McCormick Campus Ministry Center, located at North Franklin and West Jackson streets. The concert is part of the College’s “Experiencing the Arts” series. For more information, contact Music Director Robert Yenkowski at (570) 208-6044 or email RobertYenkowski@kings.edu.
