An Afternoon of Readings and Carols
New Hope Presbyterian Church, 10051 Plantation Rd, Fort Myers, FL
An Afternoon of Readings & Carols is inspired by the format of the Readings and Carols held at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ each December since 1992. The intent is not to tell the stories of Christmas and Chanukah, but to perform music and readings that reflect the universal themes of the season: birth, hope, anticipation, goodwill, and joy. The seasons of Christmas and Chanukah have provided the framework and texts for the great composers and writers throughout the ages. Through their sounds and words this evening, it is hoped that the spirit of the season will reach your ears and speak to each of you.
