This is a free, but ticketed event. Tickets are capped at 6 per person.

All concert attendees must be in their seats 15 minutes prior to the start of each concert. After that, empty seats will be released and filled by standby ticket holders.
(If for some reason a member of your party is delayed, let one of the ushers know, and we will gladly keep your seat secure.)

Locate your seat here.

Regular tickets for each concert are sold out. To reserve standby tickets, please click on the concert date. You will be connected to the Eventbrite page.

Do you have standby tickets? Please read the procedure below:
All standby ticket holders must check in at the Venue before the concert. Doors open at 6pm. As cancellations come in, we will begin seating. Then, at 6:45, all remaining empty seats will be opened up to the remaining standby ticket holders. Please remember that while a seat is not guaranteed, those who arrive early and check in have the best chance.

If you do not have a ticket you are still welcome to come and watch in the venue or add your name to the standby list.  

Those without a ticket are asked to check in at the Venue before the concert.  Doors open at 6pm.  As we are able we will seat you in the auditorium.  Please remember that while a seat is not guaranteed, those who arrive early and check in have the best chance. Those who we are unable to seat in the auditorium are welcome to watch the concert in the venue. You are also welcome to check the links above for tickets that are made available as people cancel orders.

Between purchasing presents and planning travel, enjoying holiday pageants and attending parties, it is all too easy for the bustle of Christmas to silence the sacredness and crowd out a quiet anticipation of the season's truths. Click here for a few recommended book titles.
