Candelight Chorale


The Candlelight Chorale offers three programs each year: a fall concert, a spring concert, and the Christmas Candlelight service (a Newburyport tradition since 1925). Singers are welcome to join for individual programs, and they need not be church members.

Our Candlelight service of Christmas music, a North Shore tradition for many years, will be presented this year on Sunday, December 18, 2016. Rehearsals begin on Friday, November 11. Everyone is welcome to come and sing! Commitment to weekly Friday evening rehearsals and a willingness to sing from your heart are the only requirements. No rehearsal the Friday after Thanksgiving. Email our Acting Music Director Dana Maiben if you are interested. 

This service is free and open to the public, but the sanctuary does fill up, so come early for a seat!  If seats are not available when the service begins, we may need to ask some people to wait 15-20 minutes for seats to become available.
