Heralding the beginning of the Christmas season, this candlelit choral concert has been a warm and welcoming Atlanta tradition for close to 80 years. The Emory University Chorus and Concert Choir entertains with favorite carols and hymns throughout this stirring Glenn Auditorium service, which begins with the Bidding Prayer, followed by readings of nine lessons from the Old and New Testaments leading to the birth of Christ, as offered by special guests from the Emory community. The college's acclaimed concert choir sings a variety of music throughout the year, from sacred to secular, and has performed at prestigious venues in New York, London, Berlin and elsewhere.
