Lee to Present Lessons and Carols

The Lee University School of Music and School of Religion (SOR) join together to present Lessons and Carols, a service uniting biblical lessons relating to Christ’s birth with beautiful Christmas music. The service will take place Thursday, Dec. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lee University Chapel.

“Lessons and Carols has become one of my favorite Christmas events at Lee,” said Dr. William Green, dean of the School of Music. “The simplicity of the service, the power of Scripture, and the beauty of the music come together to set my mind toward the Christ child and God’s wonderful gift to humanity. I can think of no better way to celebrate the season.”

Faculty from the SOR will read nine lessons from the Old and New Testaments that traditionally tell the fall of humanity, the promise of salvation, and the birth of Jesus. Each reading will be followed by a related carol or musical selection performed by Lee’s Chorale, directed by Green. Additionally, the interactive evening will invite guests to join in singing traditional Christmas hymns.

Dr. Matthew Krepps, professor of chemistry at Lee, will serve as the organist for the service.

Tickets are free, but required due to limited seating and are available at the Dixon Center box office, which will be open Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m. Tickets can also be reserved by calling (423) 614-8343 or online at showclix.
