The Shorter University Choral Department will help celebrate the Christmas season by hosting its annual Feaste of Caroles on Sunday, Dec. 4, in Brookes Chapel at 3:30 p.m. The event is open to the public at no charge.
The Feaste of Caroles will be a worship service centered around scripture and song that celebrates the Christmas season and the birth of Christ. In addition to great music, the program will feature Shorter faculty members reading scriptures and campus ministry representatives leading in worship.
Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Aaron Rice is planning the event to honor Christ as “the culmination of education and everyone’s identity.”
The Shorter Chorale, Men’s Choir and Women’s Choir will usher in the Christmas season through song along with the Rome Children’s Choir under the direction of Dr. Patty Nelson. During the service, the choirs will lead attendees in congregational worship.
Attendees can also expect to hear an array of instruments including a brass ensemble, handbells and organ, which will be played by Steven Wooddell, adjunct instructor of music at Shorter.
