Carthage College invites the community to celebrate the joy of the holiday season at the annual Carthage Christmas Festival, three performances of readings and music in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.
Featuring the majestic sounds of the Fritsch Memorial Organ, the Carthage Christmas Festival follows an age-old tradition of sharing the celebration of the birth of Christ through readings and music. Three identical programs are presented on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
This year’s theme, “Light and Life to All,” comes from the third verse of the traditional Christmas carol “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”: Light and life to all he brings, risen with healing in his wings.
The festival includes Carthage’s annual Service of Light, when the chapel is filled with candlelight. Each evening includes performances by students in the Carthage Choir, Carthage Treble Choir, Lincoln Chamber Singers, Carthage Chorale, Wind Orchestra, and Carthage Philharmonic.
