Editorial: A special evening

Catawba College began presenting its annual Service of Lessons and Carols 22 years ago, inviting the public to Omwake-Dearborn Chapel for an evening of beautiful Christmas music and scripture readings. It is the college’s way of thanking the community for all the support the college receives throughout the year.
Judging by Tuesday night’s program, the community should be thanking Catawba. More than 100 singers and dozens of musicians led by the college’s highly talented faculty presented a program of music and readings to an appreciative full house. The services brought the college and the community together to share a special moment.
The service will be repeated Thursday, starting with a musical prelude at 6:30 p.m. and the service itself at 7 p.m. Tickets are required and are available by calling 704-637-4396. If you’re lucky enough to go, don’t leave early. You won’t want to miss the Market Street Brass Ensemble’s closing treatment of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”
