Behind the Scenes: The Festival of Lessons & Carols

Zumbro Lutheran Church has brought this unique Advent worship experience to St. Marys Hospital Chapel of the Mayo Clinic since 1981. This year, more than 100 musicians, 18 dancers, and 9 preachers shared the story from the fall of Adam and Eve to the birth of Jesus Christ with a full chapel and countless others through the clinic’s live stream broadcast.

We offer a new look into this event-from rehearsals, movement during the worship service, to performances. Here’s a glimpse into the makings of the Festival of Lessons & Carols.
