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 2013
Christmas Vespers will be held in TLU's Jackson Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6; 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7; and 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. Tickets for each Vespers service are free but required.

Titled "So Wondrous Bright," 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. San Antonio based actress, Sam Carter Gilliam, will assist the choir and musicians in telling the story from the perspective of Ruth.
