Description

Join us for an outdoor Christmas carillon concert! Combined with the Christmas lights on the trees in the campus’ Concordia Park and the setting sun, this concert will be an enchanting experience, reminding you of the excitement and anticipation of our Lord Jesus’ birth. The concert is free and open to the public.
 
Playing the carillon for this concert is Karel Keldermans, one of the preeminent carillonneurs in North America and a carillonneur for Concordia Seminary since 2000.
