The Northwest Boychoir celebrates its 34-year tradition with the presentation of its 2012 A Festival of Lessons & Carols concert series featuring nine regional performances in December. These holiday concerts showcase the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle.

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 Puget Sound region. This classical 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.

A Festival of Lessons & Carols concerts are open to the public, and will run December 7–23, 2012 at various venues throughout the Puget Sound Region. Concerts have reserved seating. Advance tickets are available through the Northwest Choirs at 206-524-3234 or online at www.nwchoirs.org. These concerts often draw sold-out audiences. Advance ticket purchases are encouraged.
