The most festive of festivals
Dec. 21, 2018 | Last night we finished off the year on a festive note with A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.
After many weeks of practice, our choir and readers put on a beautiful evening to lead us into the holiday season. The event spanned the globe, including readings and hymns in a multitude of languages. Natalia and Winnie performed solos in English, Violetta sang in German, James presented an impressive trumpet solo, and several of our Chinese students sang in Mandarin. Each reading was also multilingual with students representing Canada, Korea, Peru, China, and Finland. Our community joined in singing many of the hymns, having practiced a few of the holiday carols during our recent morning chapel assemblies.
Wherever you're spending this winter break, we hope you have a relaxing few weeks to rest and reconnect with your loved ones. We look forward to coming together again in January!
