King’s Choir To Celebrate Holidays With Free Concerts

Cantores Christi Regis, the King’s College choir, will celebrate the holiday season with three free public performances in December.

The 35-member group will perform free concerts of contemporary and traditional Christmas songs, including many traditional holiday carols, such as “Only In Sleep” by Eriks Esenvalds, “Jingle Bell Rock” arranged by Billingsley, “Gaudete!” by Michael Engelhardt and “Mary, Did You Know” arranged by Huff. The concerts will be held at 7:30 p. m. on Friday, Dec. 1, and Saturday, Dec. 2.

In addition, the choir will perform an evening of Lessons and Carols at 7:30 p. m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6. The event is a service of Scripture and songs about the birth of Christ, and some traditional Christmas carols. Each lesson is followed by a carol that reflects the lesson’s message and a brief prayer.

All performances will be held in the J. Carroll McCormick Campus Ministry Center, located at North Franklin and West Jackson streets. For more information, contact Music Director Robert Yenkowski at (570) 208-6044 or email RobertYenkowski@kings.edu.
