Christmas Eve on public radio brings us an inspirational broadcast of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, first introduced by them in 1918. You don’t have to travel to England to hear this Christmas classic live!This year’s festival on three dates takes place at The Maryland State Boychoir Center for 

the Arts in Baltimore’s historic Mayfield community. It features traditional carols sung by over one hundred choristers and is accompanied by organ, piano, brass quintet and timpani. Civic officials and distinguished religious leaders from across the State of Maryland will deliver the lessons from Holy Scripture. 

We hope you will plan to join us!



A Note About the Bridge Closure  

Harford Road Bridge over Herring Run

This closure will occur on Monday, November 19, 2018.

During the closure, everyone who crosses the bridge will have to utilize alternate routes.  The two closest detour options for motorists are Belair Road to the East, and Hillen Road/Perring Parkway to the West.  Motorists are reminded that trying to make their way through neighborhood streets in search of an alternate detour route will only delay their trip because no other streets in the area provide a crossing of Herring Run other than the two aforementioned detour routes.





“Their ravishing tone quality, superb vocal production, and immaculate musicianship 
set them apart as one of the premier choirs of this or any area.”
- Norman Scribner, Artistic Director, Choral Arts Society of Washington (b. 1936; d. 2015)
