The Northwest Boychoir presents its 39th annual A Festival of Lessons & Carols concert series featuring eight regional performances in December. These holiday concerts showcase the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle.
Redmond students who will perform are Nathan Condon, 15, a Redmond High sophomore; Matteo Horvat, 11, an Overlake School sixth-grader; Ben Puryear, 15, an Eastlake High sophomore; Shree Balasubramaniyan, 13, an Evergreen Middle School eighth-grader; and Camryn Peterson, 17, an Eastlake High senior.
Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, A Festival of Lessons & Carols has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families in the Puget Sound region. This classical performance consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.
A Festival of Lessons & Carols concerts are open to the public, and will run Dec. 9-22 at various venues throughout the Puget Sound region. Concerts have reserved seating. For dates and locations, visit www.nwchoirs.org/concerts-and-events/
