“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.” -GramophoneFind out more »
Festival of Lessons and Carols is a customary worship that celebrates the Christmas season. Traditionally, this event would feature a stage filled with members of the Spartanburg Festival Chorus, Converse Wind Ensemble, Converse Chamber Singers, and Converse Choral, who would perform beloved traditional songs between student readings.
Like many things this year, we’ve had to adjust but Lessons and Carols, while slightly different, will remain a part of Converse’s holiday traditions. In lieu of hosting this event in person, Converse is recording a modified version of Festival of Lessons and Carols. This shortened celebration will include music and select verses of the Christmas story. The video will be shared in December with alumni and friends via email and will also be posted to the Converse website. If you’re not currently receiving Converse emails, sign up here!
Luminary submissions that were received by Friday, November 13th will be recognized at the end of the video.
We look forward to sharing this time-honored tradition with you virtually.
