The Northwest Boychoir presents its 39th annual A Festival of Lessons & Carols concert series eight regional performances through Dec. 22.

These holiday concerts showcase the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle.

Finn Hill Middle School sixth-grader Thure Bendix Bang is a member of the Northwest Boychoir and Finn Hill eighth grader Zoe Starikov is a mebmer of Vocalpoint! Seattle.

Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, A Festival of Lessons & Carols has become a holiday tradition 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.

Concerts are open to the public and will run through Dec. 22 at various venues throughout the Puget Sound Region. Concerts have reserved seating.

Advance tickets are available through the Northwest Choirs at (206) 524-3234 or online at www.nwboychoir.org.
