Christmas on Campus: Advent Candlelight Vespers in Neu Chapel

Posted: Friday, December 2, 2016

The campus community is invited to attend the University of Evansville’s annual Candlelight Advent Vespers service this evening at 7:30 p.m. in Neu Chapel.

This year’s Vespers service will feature Kantorei, UE’s smallest and most select choir, and the University Choir. The service will include Advent and Christmas carols by candlelight and sacred readings by UE students, faculty, and administrators. Patrick Ritsch, Neu Chapel organist, and Alanna Keenan, professor of music, will be providing musical leadership throughout the service.

Be sure to come early for good seats. All are welcome!

Immediately following Vespers, Timothy Zifer, professor of music, will lead the Tannenbaum Trumpets during the Christmas tree lighting processional, which begins at Neu Chapel and ends in front of Graves Hall. Join us as President Kazee flips the ceremonial light switch and illumines UE's beautiful Christmas pine.
