Christmas by Candlelight

Posted by Shades Staff

Come and Worship: Christmas by Candlelight 2018 is approaching. We're thrilled to be joined by special guests Act of Congress this year. Be sure to mark Sunday, Dec. 2 on your calendar; we have shows at 2 and 6 p.m. Admission is free, and seats are first-come, first-serve.

 In anticipation of this cherished Shades tradition, we wanted to take a look back at some highlights from recent years.

An army of volunteers invest their time and talent into CBC annually. Musicians, technicians, artists, and decorators help usher us into the Christmas season each year. One example is former lighting director Art Davis who, in addition to working full-time, spent weeks programming the lighting looks for the show. We spent some time with him during CBC prep a few years ago. Check out that blog post here.

With each passing year, there are moments we leave the show remembering. Let's relive some of those. You can view past shows and our 12 Days of Christmas Music cuts by subscribing to our YouTube channel.

So be sure to join us for Christmas by Candlelight 2018. Visit the playlist below for more Christmas favorites from years past.
