Chatfield College Presents Lessons and Carols


← Back to All News

Chatfield College will present Lessons and Carols on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 7 p.m. in the Sacred Heart Chapel, with a reception following in the Welcome Center on the St. Martin Campus in Brown County.

Lessons and Carols remind us of the meaning of the Advent Season through music and selected readings by the students and members of the Chatfield College community.  The story of the promise of the Messiah and the birth of Jesus is told in 5 short readings taken from the Book of Isaiah and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols.

“One of my favorite parts of Lessons and Carols is performing Christmas classics like ‘Joy to the World’ and ‘Silent Night’. They are guaranteed to get you in the holiday spirit,” said John Penrose, Vice President of Enrollment Management and musical director.

There will also be a special presentation entitled “T’was the Fight Before Christmas” by the newly-formed Chatfield Drama Society.

“We are very excited to have formed a drama club this semester and to have a group of students that are not only willing to spend their time at practice each week, but are excited to perform at Lessons and Carols. The club was started with the intention of giving space and opportunity for students to hang out with friends and do something they enjoy, and we are happy to see that it fulfilled its purpose,” said Beth Meyers, staff advisor for the group.

Members of the club are Courtney Sedgwick, Miranda Seward, Rae Luti, Londyn Howlett, and Hunter Ellis.

Lessons and Carols is funded in part by the Lulu O. Craig Fine Arts Fund.  Admission is free and open to the public.
