19th Carols by Candlelight (2018)
This year, three concerts:
Sunday, December 2 at 3:00pm & 7:00pm
Monday, December 3, 2018 at 7:00pm
Carols by Candlelight is an annual concert presented by the Worship Arts Ministry of First Baptist Church of Marietta, featuring the First Orchestra and Worship Choir. This concert series began with a humble beginning in 2000 and has grown steadily into a two-night concert that “kicks off” the Christmas season in Marietta.
Marietta is rich with music and our Worship Arts Ministry adds to that rich texture by presenting a sort of “classical-Christmas-pops” type of music featuring the Adult Choir alone and accompanied by the First Orchestra as well has the First Orchestra presenting Christmas favorites alone.
The concert is ALWAYS on the first successive Sunday and Monday in December at 7:00pm and seating is a premium in our 800 seat sanctuary. This past year found us with no empty seats on both concert nights so we are adding a matinee concert this year on Sunday afternoon, 3:00pm. It will be the regular, full concert. Mark your calendar now to help put yourself in the mood for Christmas with beautiful Christmas music that we are very certain you won’t hear anywhere else!
The concert is free to the public and free childcare is provided for children in Pre-K and younger.
