Take comfort and joy from this

Christmas celebration of word and song.

A freewill offering will be taken.


The annual Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols marks the beginning of the holiday season for the Greater Hartford community. The service includes music of the season offered by the Chapel Singers – the oldest continuing student group on campus – the Trinity College Gospel Choir, and the Trinity African Choir. 

The music this year is directed for the first time by Christopher Houlihan ’09, newly appointed College Organist and Director of Chapel Music. A brass quintet and timpani joins the choirs, and Vaughn Mauren ’07 accompanies on organ.

Trinity College warmly invites the public to attend the free event. ​
