Piedmont University Presents the 35th Annual Service of Lessons and Carols
Piedmont University invites you to its adored holiday event, Lessons and Carols, as it enters its 35th year on Dec. 1 and 2.
“The Annual Service of Lessons and Carols is one of the region’s most beloved events, a true Piedmont University tradition, a special time when the community gathers to welcome the holiday season,” said Bobby Ivey, fine arts facilitator and director of choirs. “We are privileged and honored to share this incredible music event for our Piedmont family and community year after year.”
The Annual Service of Lessons and Carols features the Piedmont Chorale, the Sewell Organ, the Piedmont Brass, members of the community, and the Walnut Grove High School Advanced Chorus.
“Only in its third year, the Walnut Grove choral program is quickly developing into one of the best high school choral programs in our region,” Ivey said.
Lessons and Carols features a selection of readings, carols, and choir anthems to begin the holiday season. One of the highlights of this year’s program will be Festival First Nowell, a beautiful arrangement of The First Noel sung by the choirs and audience members, accompanied by the organ and brass quintet.
“It is sure to be one of the loveliest moments of the evening,” said Ivey. “The singing of Silent Night during the candlelight section of the service is always a memorable and moving experience for everyone.”
Lessons and Carols will be performed Dec. 1 and 2 at 7:30 P.M. at the Chapel.
Attendance is free.
The Piedmont University Chapel is located at 992 Central Ave., Demorest, GA 30535.
