Annual Rockhurst University Ceremony of Lessons and Carols

Kansas City, MO – Rockhurst University’s student choruses will present the 22nd annual Ceremony of Lessons and Carols at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, in St. Francis Xavier Church, 1001 E. 52nd St., Kansas City, Mo.

More than 30 student voices will perform traditional and nontraditional seasonal music, which includes Daniel Kanton’s “Ave Maria”; scriptural readings representing the Christmas story; carols sung by the choruses and audience including the candlelight singing of “Silent Night”; and the program’s signature finale, “O Holy Night.”

Admission to the concert is free, but a donation of nonperishable food, a child’s toy, or a grooming product is requested. A candlelight procession will lead audience members to a complimentary post-concert reception in Massman Hall on the Rockhurst University Campus. To register your attendance, call 816-501-4828.
