A Festival Of Lessons & Carols

A Northwest Holiday Tradition

December 11-22, 2015

The Northwest Boychoir celebrates its 37-year tradition with the presentation of its 2015 A Festival of Lessons & Carols concert series featuring nine regional performances in December. These holiday concerts showcase the 90-member combined chorus of the Northwest Boychoir and 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 for thousands of families 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.

Stabat Mater, Fac ut ardeat cor meum - Pergolesi

  • "Lessons and Carols was the best Christmas present we’ve had for years. We were truly, truly thrilled with the concert!"
    – Audience Member
  • "As a conductor, I feel so fortunate that we have such an ensemble right here in Seattle. Northwest Boychoir was such a joy to collaborate with during our performances of Britten’s 'War Requiem', and I look forward to working with them again and again."
    – Ludovic Morlot, Music Director, Seattle Symphony
  • "The piece develops into a contrapuntal cri de coeur, incorporating the pure and precise Northwest Boychoir, as well as a mezzo and treble soloists." (VEDEM CD)
    – Joanne Sydney Lessner, Opera News
  • "We attended our first concert last night and were 'blown away' by the musical quality, direction, arrangement and the stage presence of the singers. WOW!"
    – Audience Member
  • "Between chills up the spine and tears welling in my eyes ... Well, will say only that the performance was beyond sensational. Indeed, the combination of the talent, the program, and the setting—and those pure, beautiful, resonant voices—melded so magically in what surely will be my "gift" this holiday season. Clearly, I was dazzled."
    – Lessons & Carols Audience Member
  • "I was so incredibly thrilled to work with the fine young gentlemen of Vocalpoint in my recent concerts with the Seattle Symphony. When I first met and heard them, I was blown away by the fact that these guys were still in High School! They have a musicality, sense of pitch, and professionalism the belies their years. I'll happily work with them again...anytime and anywhere."
    – Steven Reineke, Music Director, The New York Pops
  • "And amazingly gifted teen quartet Vocalpoint show skill and effortlessly blend their voices on 'Angel Eyes' and 'Walking My Baby Back Home.' " (Music of the Mad Men Era - Seattle Symphony Pops)

    – TalkinBroadway.com, Sept. 2012
  • "It’s a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit, not only hearing the boys sing their hearts out, but for us in the audience to sing lustily also, making a truly joyful noise and leaving exhilarated."
    – Philippa Kiraly, City Arts
  • "It has been a great pleasure during my years as music director of the Seattle Symphony to often work with the Northwest Boychoir. They are a superb ensemble; wonderfully trained by their extremely gifted music director, Joseph Crnko. I actually go out of my way to try to find works that incorporate a boys choir so that I can work with these talented young men and they always have all of my support."
    – Gerard Schwarz, Conductor Laureate, Seattle Symphony
  • "What really made Thursday’s performance of the Orff was the excellence of the chorus, prepared to the hilt by Joseph Crnko, and featuring not only the Seattle Symphony Chorale but also the Northwest Boychoir. This combined group sang with tremendous energy, focus, and accuracy." (Carmina Burana, Seattle Symphony)
    – Melinda Bargreen, Seattle Times
  • "I can honestly say that attending the concert in Benaroya last December was one of the top highlights of my whole holiday season. What talent!"
    – Maggie Stapleton, ‎Assistant Program Director - Classical KING FM 98.1
  • "Among the most moving was a set of Viktor Ullmann's choral arrangements of Yiddish and Hebrew songs, sung by the incomparable Northwest Boychoir, led by artistic director Joseph Crnko. How this group manages what it does is astonishing. These six songs are all over the emotional and rhythmic map, but the boychoir never faltered."
    – R.M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
