The rapture of soft harmonies in candlelight; blending vocals rising from a tiered chorus; the story of the coming of Jesus; a full congregation in song. These are the rituals of Fordham’s annual holiday concert, the Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols, held Dec. 4 and Dec. 5 on two Fordham campuses.
This year’s event featured the Fordham University Choir and Liturgical Choir, under Robert A. Minotti; the Fordham University Women’s Choir, under Stephen Fox; and the Bronx Arts Ensemble. Saturday’s program also featured sophomores from the Fordham/Ailey B.F.A. Dance Program.
What a perfect start to the Christmas season.
