About Christmas Vespers at Rollins

Each year, Rollins invites the community to the Knowles Memorial Chapel for Christmas Vespers, an evening of carols and lessons performed by the Virginia S. & W. W. Nelson Department of Music's choral and instrumental ensembles. An elegant candlelit procession is followed by student-performed Christmas carols as well as scripture readings that reflect on the Christmas season.
