‘A Festival of Carols’ to be televised in four states this month

Goshen College’s annual “A Festival of Carols” program will again air this year on PBS television stations in Indiana, Michigan, Kansas and Pennsylvania.

Watch a promo for the 2019 ‘A Festival of Carols’ :

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 broadcast of the 2019 program which was filmed in Goshen College’s Sauder Concert Hall by Goshen College’s Communication Department students and faculty.
