Nearly 200 student musicians will perform in Stetson’s popular Christmas Candlelight Concert, featuring Christmas music from around the world this year. This is a sell-out event year after year, so get your tickets early.
Concert tickets will go on sale online Tuesday, Aug. 1, and usually sell out for four performances, set for Nov. 30 to Dec. 2 in Lee Chapel on Stetson University’s DeLand campus.
“This year there will be a large focus on Christmas music from around the world,” said Timothy Peter, director of Choral Activities at Stetson University. “The beautiful candle lighting will remain a tradition at the end of the concert.”
The concerts will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, and Friday, Dec. 1, at 7:30 p.m., with two performances on Saturday, Dec. 2, at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Tickets are $30 for adults; $15 for youth, ages 4-21; and $15 with a Stetson ID. There is a limit of six tickets per customer.
The concert brings together students in three choirs in the Stetson School of Music — the Concert Choir, the Stetson Men and Women’s Chorale – with students in a Chamber Orchestra, brass and winds from the Symphonic Band, and an organist.
