Iowa Wesleyan to Host Annual Service of Lessons & Carols December 3 & 4

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

This sacred service, entitled “Let My Love Be Heard,” will be held live on Saturday, December 3, and Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 7 PM in the Iowa Wesleyan University Chapel Auditorium in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. This signature holiday service will feature performances from The Mount Pleasant Chorale, IW Choir, Primae Voces, SEISO Chamber Orchestra, and more.

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

“Advent, and the Christmas season, is one of the most special times of the year. Lessons & Carols captures the essence of this beauty and wraps it in a musical gift,” said Blair Buffington, Director of Choral Activities and Artistic Director of the event. “Our Iowa Wesleyan students, faculty, and staff work very hard and look forward to making this gift to the community.”

This event is free and open to the public. A free-will offering will be taken at the end of the service to benefit the students in the IW Music Department.
