The Egner Memorial Chapel, the Department of Music and the Department of Theatre & Dance are proud to present the very popular Advent Candlelight Carols Service, adapted from the Festival of Lessons and Carols of King’s College, Cambridge University in England.

Each year, the Muhlenberg and surrounding Allentown Community gather for three Candlelight services to mark the season of Advent. The service features the congregational singing of traditional Advent carols, readings of scripture by members of the College community and musical offerings specially prepared by the College's Choirs, Department of Music and Department of Theatre & Dance.

Muhlenberg College welcomes all who wish to join together in community to mark this special time of year. Although Candlelight Carols is a Christian tradition and service, we invite people of all faith backgrounds to join us as we reflect on common themes of hope and beauty.
