Thrill to the glorious sound of the Northwest Boychoir as it performs A Festival of Lessons & Carols, a holiday concert series now in its 36th year that showcases the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle accompanied by the Northwest Sinfonia and conducted by Joseph Crnko.
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 Seattle region. This traditional 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, bringing the beauty and magic of Christmas into crystal-clear focus.
The Northwest Boychoir’s ability to perform music from any era, its bright tone, and dedication to musical excellence have established its reputation as one of the nation’s premier boychoirs.
