The Corps of Cadets presents annual candlelight service

The South Carolina Corps of Cadets will present its annual Christmas Candlelight Service to the Lowcountry at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3, 4 and 5 in Summerall Chapel on The Citadel campus.

Cadets from the Protestant, Catholic, Gospel Choirs, Chorale, and members of The Citadel Regimental Band will take part in the annual celebration of the birth of Christ, observing the events of the Advent, the Annunciation, the Birth of the King, and Epiphany through Scripture lessons and carols. Traditional and international favorites will be sung, and special highlights will include the Procession of Lights.

Cadets coordinate the production with Nancy Lefter, director of chorale activities, organist Mark A. Bebensee of the School of Business Administration and Commander Mike Alverson, director of music

The hour-long program is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted. Flash cameras and video lights are not permitted.

This event is one of the most popular Christmas activities in Charleston. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to secure parking on campus and seating in the chapel. For more information, call (843) 953-5049.
