Festival of Lessons & Carols Tickets Available!
Nebraska Christian Schools is excited to once again present the Festival of Lessons & Carols! Local students and musicians will participate in the 2019 Festival of Lessons and Carols, to be held on December 13 at Nebraska Christian Schools. This program, entitled “Voices of Angels” will be presented in the school’s gymnasium.
Doors open at 5:15 p.m., and courtesy valet parking will be available. The program will begin at 6:15.
The Festival, now in its 14th year at Nebraska Christian, will once again be directed by international conductor Maestro Eric Dale Knapp of New York City.
Linda Sweetman-Waters, a piano soloist, organist, chamber musician, and accompanist, is also returning to perform as part of the concert.
The festival choir will be comprised of more than 125 voices and includes students from Nebraska Christian, Heartland Lutheran, High Plains, and Silver Lake, as well as area home schools.
Approximately 30 elementary students will be in the Children’s Choir, which will be directed by Mike Flynn, Nebraska Christian music director.
The 40-piece orchestra will include musicians from Kearney, Hastings, and the surrounding area.
Choir members will participate in an all-day choral workshop with Maestro Knapp prior to the evening performance.
Due to the length and the sacred and worshipful tone, it is not an event for young children.
Ticket sales will run from 12:00 a.m. on November 1 through 5:00 p.m. on December 12. Tickets are $22 each and may be purchased online at nebraskachristian.org/festival.
The 2019 Festival of Lessons & Carols is sponsored in part by Nebraska Christian Schools, Nebraska Arts Council, the Merrick Foundation, and Nebraska Christian Schools Foundation.
