The annual Berea College Christmas Concert, co-sponsored by the College’s music department and the Willis D. Weatherford Jr. Campus Christian Center, will be held on two successive nights—Friday evening Nov. 30 and Saturday evening Dec. 1. Both performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Union Church.

All are invited to attend this event and to join in the singing of traditional carols, but reservations are required for admission due to limited seating. Tickets cost $5 per person. Children 2 years and younger do not need a reservation. Applicable sales tax and service fees are included in the cost of the reservation.

Each order for tickets is limited to four reservations. The performances offer general admission seating options for each night on the main floor and the balcony. Beginning Thursday, November 1, ticket reservations can be made here.

The doors to Union Church will open to the public at 6:45 p.m. each night.

Berea College, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, focuses on learning, labor and service. The College admits only academically promising students with limited financial resources, primarily from Kentucky and Appalachia, although students come from 40 states and 70 countries. Every Berea student receives a Tuition Promise Scholarship, which means no Berea student pays for tuition. Berea is one of nine federally-recognized Work Colleges, so students work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, housing and meals. The College’s motto, “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” speaks to its inclusive Christian character.
