This year, the School of Music expanded its audience to Orlando with one performance of the Christmas Candlelight Concert at First United Methodist Church of Orlando. This performance was in addition to the three sold-out performances at Lee Chapel in historic Elizabeth Hall.
Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Stetson University celebrated the 200th anniversary of "Silent Night" by staying true to the original version played by Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber with only vocals and a guitar. According to the "Silent Night" legend, the organ of the church in the small village of Oberndorf was broken on Christmas Eve, but that did not stop Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber from arranging the beautiful carol with guitar accompaniment.
