On December 2 and 3, the Asheville Choral Society will offer two performances of their second annual Yuletide Candlelight program—a new family tradition for the holidays. At 7:30 p.m. on December 2 and again at 4:30 p.m. on December 3, the choir will hold their candlelight procession in the beautiful Trinity Episcopal Church on 60 Church Street, Asheville.

The music will be festive with Christmas and seasonal favorites, brass, and will feature children’s voices from the Celebration Singers of Asheville! Selections will include: Ave Maria by Franz Biebl, the classic “Carol of the Bells,” Ola Gjeilo’s arrangement of “The Coventry Carol” and James MacMillan’s stunning “Who Are These Angels?” Bring the whole family and enjoy this sparkling annual tradition with the Asheville Choral Society.

Tickets can be purchased at ashevillechoralsociety.org or by calling 828.232.2060. Ticket prices are $20 for adults, $10 for students, or $25 at the door. The Asheville Choral Society also wishes to thank the sponsors for this concert, Givens Highlands Farms, Weaverville Eye Associates, and Asheville Humane Society.
