Festival of Lessons and Carols at Wisconsin Lutheran College
Date Posted: November 7, 2007
MILWAUKEE – A Festival of Lessons and Carols will take place on Sunday, December 9 at 7 p.m. in the chapel at Wisconsin Lutheran College.
A Festival of Lessons and Carols is a traditional service of scripture and song that traces its roots back to England. This service has been sung annually by the King’s College Choir of Cambridge on Christmas Eve since 1918 and is often heard around the world.
The Wisconsin Lutheran College service is comprised of nine lessons read by members of the college campus and church community. Each lesson is followed with music by Revelation, WLC’s Christian contemporary choir; Tower Ringers, the college handbell choir; and congregational singing. The joint participation of the college and outside community symbolizes the joy shared by all people at Christmastime.
The service is free and open to the public. It begins at 7 p.m. in the chapel, which is located inside the Gary J. Greenfield Administration Building, 8800 West Bluemound Road. A light reception will follow the service. For more information call the campus ministry office at (414) 443-8750 or visit wlc.edu.
Wisconsin Lutheran College is an independent, liberal arts college located on the west side of Milwaukee.
