Christmas Vespers 2014

December 05, 2014 7:30 PM - December 05, 2014 9:00 PM   |   Location: Jackson Auditorium

Christmas Vespers 2014

In preparation for the Christmas season, Texas Lutheran hosts its annual Christmas Vespers service. This celebration of music and word honors the integral role music has played in Texas Lutheran's curriculum and religious and cultural history. Audiences take advantage of the opportunity to hear the ethereal voices of the TLU choirs each year at both the Seguin and Austin Vespers services.

Christmas Vespers 2014

Christmas Vespers will be held in TLU's Jackson Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5; 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6; and 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7. Tickets for each Vespers service are free but required.

Titled "Angels Heard on High," this year's Vespers service of word and music will feature the TLU Choir, TLU Women’s Choir, Kantorei Chamber Choir and the TLU Symphonic Winds and Percussion. The service will explore the role of the Messengers of God (Angels) in the season of Christmas and what it means in our daily living to “Entertain Angels Unawares.” San Antonio based actress, Sam Carter Gilliam, will assist the choir and instrumentalists in sharing the good news of Christmas.

Tickets will be available beginning Nov. 1. Please return to this page on or after Nov. 1 to reserve your tickets.

If you are interested in attending the Vespers service in Austin at St. Martin's Evangelical Lutheran Church, it will take place on Sunday, Dec. 14 at 4 p.m. This Vespers service is free and no tickets are required.
