Christmas Candlelight 2021
Thank you to all our community supporters for your enthusiasm for our Christmas Candlelight Concerts, and for your steadfast support through the pandemic. We are very pleased to announce that these 4 performances will once again be held in the historic Lee Chapel in Elizabeth Hall.
Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, October 27, at noon. A link will be published here on this website page and sent out via email announcement. Due to campus safety restrictions and protocols, tickets will be sold online only. With limited capacity, they will be available on a first come, first served basis. All seating is general admission, $40 per ticket with a $1 processing fee.
The Christmas Candlelight Concerts showcase more than 175 student musicians from the Stetson University Concert Choir, Hatter Choir, Stetson Chorale and members of the Chamber Orchestra and Symphonic Band. The musical repertoire for this year's concerts focus on an inclusive and welcoming global lore plus John Rutter’s arrangement of “Silent Night” sung by multiple choirs as they light candles and close the performance.
“The in-person 2021 Christmas Candlelight concerts will feature School of Music students safely performing together,” said Timothy Peter, DMA, director of choral activities at Stetson. “Music is a wonderful tool for comfort, healing and promise, especially during these lonely months that have been experienced by many people during the COVID-19 pandemic. The School of Music is looking forward to sharing the music of the holiday season with the community, families and friends.”
The four Christmas Candlelight concerts will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 2, 7:30 p.m., and Friday, Dec. 3, 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. All seating is general admission. Doors open 45 minutes before each performance. We ask that everyone be seated 15 minutes prior to the start of the concert. Guests are asked to wear a face mask at all times and observe physical distancing guidelines.
