The Citadel's 77th Christmas Candlelight Services Dec. 5 - 7
One of Charleston's longest and most memorable holiday traditions is the Christmas Candlelight Service at The Citadel's historic Summerall Chapel. The services, which are held for the community and for visitors to Charleston, feature Christmas music performed by members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
The 2014 services will take place Dec. 5 – 7. Cadets who are part of the Protestant, Catholic and Gospel Choirs, join their talents with The Citadel Chorale and members of The Citadel Regimental Band, to create an unforgettable Christmas celebration.
Part of the grandeur of the celebration includes poinsettias that cover the front of the chapel, provided by Citadel families, faculty and staff, as well as neighbors from throughout the Charleston community to honor or remember someone they love.
There is no admission fee but early arrival is highly suggested.
