When the Northwest Boychoir opens its 38th season of A Festival of Lessons and Carols at Lynnwood’s Trinity Lutheran Church on December 10, there will be no fewer than seven very proud choristers from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

Ranging in age from 10 to 17, the students attend Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools, Evergreen, and Lakeside.

Nathaniel Rose, for example, is in 5th grade at Evergreen and worked his way over many years to the top performing choir.

Aidan Cazeau, who lives in Lake Forest Park and is in 9th grade at Lakeside, graduated to Vocalpoint! Seattle last year, where he joined Kaylie McRae, in 9th grade at Shorewood and Annika Simpson, in 11th grade at Shorecrest.

The other names were not available for publication.

They perform these thrilling concerts alongside the Northwest Boychoir that have become a holiday tradition for thousands of families in the Puget Sound region and showcase the 90-member combined chorus.

Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, A Festival of Lessons and Carols consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.

The talented young musicians ages 10-18 attend 63 local schools. The eight regional performances culminate at Benaroya Hall on Dec. 23, when the Seattle Symphony, with members of the Northwest Sinfonia, presents the final performance of A Festival of Lessons and Carols.

A Festival of Lessons and Carols concerts are open to the public, and will run December 10-23, 2016 at various venues throughout the Puget Sound Region, including Lynnwood, Laurelhurst, West Seattle, Ballard, and Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle. Concerts have reserved seating.

Advance tickets are available at 206-524-3234 or online. These concerts often draw sold-out audiences and advance ticket purchases are encouraged!
