Christmas Carol Concert

The first Christmas Carol Concert
was performed December 21, 1927.
It has since grown into a beloved holiday tradition in Atlanta, held annually on three nights early in December. The concert features a combined chorus of both the Morehouse and Spelman College Glee Clubs presented in alternation with selections from each individual Glee Club as they perform special arrangements of Christmas carols, anthems, spirituals, and African songs. Over 7000 people come from all over the southeast each year to attend the concerts, which are presented free of charge as a gift of music to the community.

The 88th Annual Christmas Carol Concert will be presented Friday, December 5, and Sunday, December 7, 2014, in King Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College, and Saturday, December 6, 2014 in Sisters Chapel on the campus of Spelman College. The concert begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
