Behold: A Folk Christmas Cantata

Pay What You Will: $10-50

Our annual Christmas concert returns, this time with a splash of Honey. Featuring the familiar gospel music that’s always at the heart of our Behold, our 2019 offering includes a special focus on the Mary story and the women of Sweet Tea Shakespeare (but dudes are around, too). Behold’s reputation as a reflective, stirring, and heartfelt Christmastime celebration always holds true. A warm and comforting seasonal blend.
Our celebration of the winter season—part Gospel, part Sweet Tea magic—is an evening of communion meant to warm your hearts and focus your minds on Advent and Christmas. Featuring Andrew Peterson’s folk cantata Behold the Lamb of God rounded out with songs both traditional and new, Behold tells Old and New Testament stories with simplicity and grace, during this time of joy and reflection.

Show starts at 7pm – Holiday Merriment and Music at 6:15
Outside food and drink are not permitted.
Changes due to inclement weather will be announced on our website and Facebook page.
