He Is Coming Soon: Christmas with Iowa Wesleyan, a Service of Lessons & Carols

Iowa Wesleyan University invites the community to celebrate the holiday season with the time-honored tradition of Lessons & Carols, a service highlighting the Iowa Wesleyan Music Department students and music performers within the Southeast Iowa Community.

This sacred concert entitled “He Is Coming Soon” will be held live, in person, on Saturday, December 4, and Sunday, December 5, 2021, at 7 pm in the Iowa Wesleyan University Chapel in Mount Pleasant, Iowa.

Join IW as they celebrate the holiday season with traditional and contemporary choral and instrumental music paired with scriptures that recount the Christmas story.

“Lessons & Carols is the culmination of an entire season of teaching and learning. It is a true blessing to have the return of something so traditional and special for our campus and community and be able to offer a live performance once again,” said Blair Buffington, Director of Choral Activities and Artistic Director of the event. “We want to share a message of hope and peace this year, and music is the gift we have been given to deliver that message.”

There is no charge for attending the event, but reservations are required. Seats may be reserved by visiting www.iw.edu/carols/ or by calling (319) 385-6215. A free-will offering will be taken at the end of the service to benefit the students in the IW Music Department.
