The time-honored tradition of Christmas with Saint Ben’s & Saint John’s (formerly Christmas at Saint John’s) returns with two on-campus performances in the Abbey and University Church at Saint John’s University. Beloved annual pieces to be performed include: “The Glory of the Father” (Egil Hovland); “Personent Hodie” (arr. Lara Hoggard); “There Shall A Star Come Out of Jacob” (Felix Mendelssohn) and “Hallelujah Chorus” (G.F. Handel). Dr. Kim Kasling, professor emeritus of music, will be featured on the newly expanded Holtkamp-Pasi pipe organ. This annual concert celebrates the seasons of Advent and Christmas through traditional and contemporary music.

Participating Ensembles:

  • Chamber Choir
  • Men's Chorus
  • Women's Choir
  • St. John's Boys' Choir
  • Brass Choir

Due to COVID-19 protocols, the traditional Saturday evening concert at the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis will not occur this year and the on-campus performances are being shifted into the Abbey and University Church to maintain adequate distancing for all ensembles to participate safely.
