Christmas Candlelight Concert Tickets on Sale

A limited number of tickets went on sale Monday, Dec. 2, for Stetson’s beloved holiday tradition, the Christmas Candlelight concerts, which will begin this Wednesday night in Lee Chapel.

Three performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, through Friday, Dec. 6, in Lee Chapel inside Elizabeth Hall on the DeLand campus. The final performance will take place Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the First United Methodist Church of Orlando, 142 E. Jackson St. in downtown Orlando.

The Christmas Candlelight concerts bring together more than 200 student musicians from three choirs — Stetson’s premier touring choir, the Concert Choir, as well as the Women’s Chorale and the Stetson Men. These singers will be joined by the Stetson Chamber Orchestra, members of the brass and winds from the Symphonic Band, and an organist.
