Ceremony of Lessons and Carols

Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Arrupe Hall auditorium

Rockhurst student choruses will perform Ceremony of Lessons and Carols, a Rockhurst tradition for more than 25 years. This annual holiday concert traces its origins to King’s College Chapel at the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England, where the first Ceremony of Nine Lessons and Carols was performed on Christmas Eve in 1918.

Biblical readings from the Old and New Testaments relating to the Christmas story are interspersed with musical selections. Readers will represent Rockhurst University constituencies: students, alumni, faculty, staff and administration.

Admission is free. Free parking is available in the garage a 52nd Street and Troost Avenue and in lots by the University’s entrance at 54th Street and Troost Avenue. See rockhurst.edu/map for more.
