A Festival of Lessons & Carols

Students, faculty, their families, alumni, and guests joined together in Langhorne Memorial Chapel for two presentations of A Festival of Lessons & Carols on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

The services featured performances by the school's Glee Club, Vocal Ensemble, and instrumental Ensemble. The music was complemented by readings from scripture and prayer.

Between the performances, students and faculty gathered together to celebrate the evening with a Christmas Dinner in Harrison Dining Room. At the same time, parents, alumni, and guests attended a reception graciously hosted by Headmaster Tommy and Mary Stuart Battle.
