Christmas with Abendmusik: “Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room”
Sunday, December 10 at 4:00 & 6:30 PM – FREE
First-Plymouth Church, 2000 D Street
Christmas with Abendmusik has become one of Lincoln’s most beloved holiday traditions. Come and create your own memories when Abendmusik at First-Plymouth presents “Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room: Christmas with Abendmusik” on Sunday, December 10 at 4:00 and 6:30 p.m. at Lincoln's historic First-Plymouth Church, 20th and D Streets. Thanks to our generous season sponsors, the concerts are free, and a livestream of the 6:30 p.m. performance will be available at abendmusik.org. The concerts will also be interpreted for the hearing impaired.
The Plymouth Choir, Plymouth Ringers, Plymouth Brass, and Abendmusik Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Tom Trenney and Ariel Merivil will prepare your heart for the hope of the season through heavenly carols and spirited songs to celebrate Christmas. As a special treat, the Lincoln Boys Choir will be featured in the program, and the audience will be invited to join in festive arrangements of favorite carols.
Though the concert is free, donations benefiting the ECHO Collective are welcome. “ECHO Collective welcomes and empowers refugee and immigrant women to Lincoln, Nebraska, providing free one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship education and creative classes,” explains Kelly Ross, Founder and Executive Director. “Founded in 2020, we have graduated 31 entrepreneurs and 55 artisans from their programs with many more to come.” Shokhan Tofiq, one of the remarkable graduates of The Refinery entrepreneurship program, reflecting on the love and hope ignited through her experience at ECHO Collective, stated “Before I thought my life was going to stop, but now I know I'm going to continue. I feel strong, and I believe in myself. I know I can accomplish big dreams.”
Prepare your heart for the holidays and experience Christmas with Abendmusik-- truly music that inspires!
