Christmas Vespers Rings in the Holiday Spirit

Featuring the Rollins choir and orchestra, Vespers blends classical sacred music with the traditional Christmas story.

Christmas Vespers services, which took place December 6 – 8, 2013, are held each December in the Knowles Memorial Chapel and are a longstanding holiday tradition for the Rollins community. A stark contrast from contemporary Christmas celebrations, Vespers, with its ceremonial candle-lit procession, readings of Christmas lessons, and sacred music, serves as a more spiritual connection to and traditional observance of the holiday.
