    The Capital University Christmas Festival continues a legacy dating back to the 1928 founding of the Capital University Chapel Choir. As the university’s annual Christmas gift to the community, the festival has become one of Columbus’ most beloved Christmas traditions. Year after year many friends of the university and music lovers in central Ohio proclaim that the Capital University Christmas Festival marks the beginning of their holiday season. This cherished concert series includes readings of poetry, prose, and scripture, interspersed with choral music and unified by a spiritual theme. Using every part of the concert hall, including the aisles and the balcony, the choir embraces the audience in song. The festival, presented each year to capacity audiences in Mees Hall, features over 200 singers from five choral ensembles, as well as multiple instrumentalists from the Conservatory and the Columbus community.

    Although Capital University will be unable to offer an in-person Christmas Festival this year, the 2020 Christmas Festival, Together We, will be offered in an online format and free to our viewers, giving us the opportunity to share the joy and hope of the season with audiences near and far. Together We will include video highlights of several past Christmas Festivals performed by the renowned Conservatory of Music choral ensembles and instrumentalists. This virtual Christmas Festival will also feature a recorded performance by the 2020-21 Chapel Choir. Join us as together we celebrate the miracle and wonder of the Christmas story.
