Christmas Candlelight

For more than 100 years, the School of Music’s jubilant choirs and musicians have been captivating audiences with its annual, breathtaking performance, which has evolved into an evening dedicated to inclusive, sacred music from various cultural and religious traditions celebrated during the holidays.

The 2024 Christmas Candlelight Concerts will showcase more than 150 student musicians including the Stetson University Concert Choir (SATB) conducted by Dr. Timothy Peter, Hatter Choir (TTBB) and the Stetson Chorale (SSAA) conducted by Dr. Pingyi Song as well as instrumentalists from the Chamber Orchestra and Symphonic Band. Dr. Boyd Jones will be the featured organist.  The musical repertoire for 2024 continues a tradition of inclusivity and a welcoming spirit with the warmth of the beautifully Lee Chapel and the grand and magnificent First United Methodist Church in Orlando. As each annual concert concludes,  “Silent Night” will be sung by multiple choirs as they light candles and close the performance.
