2017 – 2018 Concert Season

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

The I Cantanti Chamber Choirs, directed by Wayne Kivell, will present its Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols concert at Skinner Chapel, Carleton College, on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. Free-will exit offering.

The concert will also be presented at the St. Luke’s Church in Faribault, Sunday, December 3, 2017, 7:00 p.m. Free-will exit offering.

First presented in Northfield in 1997, the Nine Lessons and Carols has grown here in popularity. This is the fifteenth time I Cantanti has presented this concert, modeled after the annual Christmas Eve performance at Kings College in Cambridge, England. The concert features nine Biblical readings recounting the Christmas story from Old and New Testament readings, each followed by choral selections or carols which elaborate the readings.
