The beauty of the season and the soaring treble voices of the Appleton Boychoir come together in A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. A spectacular community tradition for generations, the concert brings the best loved songs of Christmas along with the splendor of the ceremony. Modeled after the famous Kings College festival, which was first present in Cambridge, England in 1918, biblical lessons telling the Christmas story are read beginning with a young boy chorister and continuing to representatives of the university and even the Mayor of the City of Appleton. The majesty of music…the setting of the Lawrence Memorial Chapel…and the inspiring voices of the Appleton Boychoir and MasterSingers make this a Christmas event not to be missed!
