It is during especially challenging times as these in which community takes on the greatest significance. One of the meaningful manifestations of community at the University of Redlands is the Annual Feast of Lights. As a result of the pandemic, community in the traditional sense of the word has to be reimagined.
This year, the 73rd Feast of Lights will be presented in a virtual format and will feature performances by the 2020/2021 University of Redlands Chapel Singers, University Choir, String Quartet and Brass Quintet. It will also feature newly recorded organ performances by Jeff Rickard, Fred Swann, Alison Luedecke, and Connor Licharz. We have opened the Feast of Lights recording vault, and works from the 2007 Feast of Lights under the direction of Jeff Rickard and the 1954 Feast of Lights under the direction of J. William Jones will also be included. It will be a true celebration of our wonderful tradition.
The 73rd Feast will culminate in a global virtual choir of over 200 Feast of Lights alumni and current students in our rendition of John Rutter’s Silent Night.
The virtual Feast of Lights can be viewed online starting Friday, December 4 at 8 p.m. for $20, and will remain available for streaming for 30 days.
