Five Greenwood students are among the 90-member combined Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! girls choir that will perform “A Festival of Lessons & Carols” at nine performances this holiday season.

The participating Greenwood students are Madeleine Zeiler (Ingraham High School), Juan Hillón (St. John’s Catholic School), Will Austin (St. John’s), John Austin (St. John’s) and Lila Forde (Seattle Waldorf School.

Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, A Festival of Lessons & Carols has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families in the Puget Sound region. This classical performance consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.

Performances run from Dec. 7-23. Advance tickets are available through the Northwest Choirs at 206-524-3234 or online.
