Goshen College’s annual “A Festival of Carols” program returns this year on PBS stations around Indiana.

With Christmas looking a little different this year due to COVID-19, one tradition that remains the same is Goshen College’s annual Christmas concert, featuring the college’s orchestra and three vocal ensembles, plus the community Shout For Joy Children’s Choir.

The hour-long program appeals to a wide audience due to the classic nature of favorite Christmas songs, carols and traditional hymns. This will be the premiere broadcast of the 2019 program which was filmed in Goshen College’s Sauder Concert Hall by Goshen College’s Communication Department students and faculty.

A Festival of Carols is a dynamic program that combines the Goshen College choirs, orchestra, ensembles, and the communities own children’s choir. Audiences who are missing out on attending A Festival of Carols this year can enjoy the 2019’s version, while other audiences around Indiana will have the opportunity to take in this seasonal favorite.
