Brevard College’s Music Department will present its 16th annual performance of The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 9 in the Porter Center for Performing Arts.

Admission to the service, which has become a time-honored tradition for both the College and the community, is free.

The performance will include new and traditional carols sung by the Chamber and Concert Choirs under the direction of Brevard College Assistant Professor of Music David Gresham.

The service, which features traditional Christmas readings by Brevard College students, faculty and staff, is modeled on the traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols first held on Christmas Eve in 1918 at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England.
