Lawrence, will be joined by Roanoke Chamber Brass, flutist Julee Hickcox, organist Joe Kennedy, and pianist C. W. Markham.

Carols By Candlelight celebrates the seasons of Advent and Christmas with readings, anthems, and carols that tell the story of the prophecy, nativity, and adoration of the Christ Child. Music will include carol settings by David Wilcocks, John Rutter, Lara Hoggard, Harold Darke and Andre Thomas. Roanoke Chamber Brass, tenor Nick Leitch and flutist Julee Hickcox will provide prelude music and the congregation will join in singing beloved carols.

St. Mark’s is proud to announce that this seventh annual presentation of Carols By Candlelight will benefit the Bradley Free Clinic’s HOPE Initiative, which provides a gateway to treatment and recovery resources for persons suffering from Substance Use Disorders.
