Festival of Lessons & Carols to be held December 8 in Spencer 

The Spencer Messiah Board will present the Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Spencer.

Director Tom Rutt explains.  "Usually people know us for our Messiah presentations, which we did last year, we do that every three years.  In the in-between years since 1977, we've had this Festival of Lessons and Carols, so it's kind of become it's own tradition in itself."

He adds that the concert will feature a brass quintet.  "We usually have some sort of special group, and I'm also a trombonist by trade, so I got some of my 'Brass Buddies' together that are going to play some Christmas type music during the offertory, and we'll also play along with the hymns.  So, it's just a neat thing."

The concert will start at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
