Christmas Vespers 2017

In preparation for the Christmas season, Texas Lutheran University 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.

Christmas Vespers 2017: Season Of Light

Titled “Season of Light,” 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 music for this service will focus on Advent as the season of hope; honoring the strength of the human spirit, even in the most difficult of times. San Antonio actress, Sam Carter Gilliam, will perform short monologues between the musical numbers which lend context to the music being performed.

Christmas Vespers will be held in TLU's Jackson Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1; 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2; and 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3. Tickets for each Vespers service are free but required.
