We have collaborated with compiled visuals by various artists, passionate instrumental musicians, and talented vocalists to bring together a beautiful and reverent event that brings the entire story of the Our Lord’s nativity in an extraordinary way.

At the heart of this concert is a carefully curated repertoire of Advent-themed choral music, meticulously crafted to evoke the emotions of waiting, anticipation, and hope that define this important season. Breath-taking renditions of iconic hymns and awe-inspiring compositions, delivered by our exceptional choirs, will envelop the congregation, creating an atmosphere of anticipation and reverence.

What sets this concert apart is the seamless integration of visual art which will be displayed and integrated alongside the choral performances. Creating visual segments in each beautiful station to be projected on a 9’ x 12’ screen with stunning artworks inspired by the scripture passages that will be recited throughout the performance. These thought-provoking images will be shown with all their beauty, allowing attendees to explore the rich symbolism and meanings behind each integral station. The visual art will serve as a visual narrative, enhancing the spiritual journey that the music and scripture will take you on.

The concert will intertwine the music, art, and scripture, creating a multi-sensory experience that fosters a deep, emotional connection to the Advent season. Through this immersive experience, attendees will immerse themselves in the story of Advent, fueling their own personal reflections and contemplations.
