Christmas Vespers 2019

Titled “All Earth is Hopeful,” this year's Vespers service of word and music will feature the TLU Choir, TLU Treble Choir, Kantorei Chamber Choir, and the TLU Symphonic Winds and Percussion. This year’s program is a reminder of Advent as a time of quiet reflection, prayerful waiting, and hopeful anticipation of the birth of Christ. San Antonio actress, Sam Carter Gilliam, will perform short monologues between the musical numbers which weave a story and lend context to the music being performed.
