The Shady Grove Coffeehouse
Presenting the best in acoustic music in a family-friendly, smoke- and alcohol-free environment
at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Glen Allen, VA
Our Next Show
Please join us on December 2 for a festive celebration of the holiday season through story and song. The first half of the concert will consist of nine traditional scripture lessons, illustrated by traditional and contemporary music. This portion of the concert is based on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols that has been presented on Christmas Eve at Kings College, Cambridge since 1918.
The second half of the concert, which is a joint SGCH-UUCC event, will include stories and songs from several holiday traditions, including Hanukah, Yule, and Christmas. Because embracing traditions from a variety of cultures is such a key part both of the folk tradition and of Unitarian Universalism, we wanted to do so in our December program.
The concert will feature performances by the UUCC Choir as well as a number of smaller ensembles and soloists. We hope each of you will find these stories and songs a source of joy and inspiration as you celebrate the holidays with us.
Tickets are $10 in advance; $15 at the door. Children 12 and under admitted free of charge; teens 13-18 admitted at half price. Purchase advance tickets online here, or reserve tickets by sending e-mail to email@example.com or by calling (804) 323-4288.
