A Cambridge Christmas Eve tradition is coming to the Grand Halle in Johnstown.

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols will be performed at The Grand Halle on Broad Street at 7 p.m. on December 21. This annual Christmas Eve service is mirrored to the one happening in the King’s College Chapel at Cambridge in England.

The Greater Johnstown Community Chorus will perform a number of traditional and contemporary Christmas songs, including “Do you hear what I hear,” “Still, Still, Still,” “Of the Father’s Love Begotten,” and “Candlelight Carol” and others.

During the King’s College tradition, the service opens with a child singing “Once in Royal David’s City.” In the Johnstown service, Aria Parlock, a third grader at Forest Hills Elementary, will sing this solo.

“The former Immaculate Conception Church – now The Grand Halle – was a space created for music,” said Kim Rauch who directs the Community Chorus and program organizer. “I can’t imagine a more inspiring or fitting event here.”

Tickets are $10 for adults and free for students and children, but everyone must have a ticket. All tickets are available at GrandHalle.com, by calling 814-536-7986 or at the door on a first-come, first-serve basis. Seating is limited to 200 people.

The Grand Halle on Broad Street is located at 306 Broad Street, the corner of Broad and Third Avenue, in Johnstown.
