Carols by Candlelight: The Advent Concert

The Chamber Choir of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, directed by Ryan Jackson, with Patrick Kreeger, organ, and Jeanne Lehman, reader.


Step away from the bustle of Christmas preparations for an hour of choral music and congregational carols in the candlelit beauty of Kirkland Chapel. Broadway star Jeanne Lehman reads seasonal poetry as the Chamber Choir performs a blend of familiar Christmas music and new treasures that tell of the wonder and majesty of Jesus’ birth. Hot cider and cookies are served following the concert.

A second performance will take place at 7 pm Saturday, Dec. 7.

Tickets (starting at $15) will be on sale on Sunday mornings in the Chesnut Gallery beginning several weeks before the performance. Tickets also are available online.
