PHILADELPHIA — Carol Night is a treasured tradition at Chestnut Hill College, and the 2017 Carol Night will take place on Friday, December 1, at 7:30 p.m., in the Rotunda of St. Joseph Hall.

This holiday celebration will feature performances by the College’s primary musical ensembles including Jazz Ensemble, Hill Singers, String Ensemble and Wind Ensemble performing Christmas tunes old and new.

The performance will end with a sing-along of Christmas carols and a visit from Santa Claus when children can share their special wishes with him. A reception will follow the concert in the East Parlor, and guests will enjoy the holiday decorations put up by students the night before.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information about the event contact Kathleen McCloskey, SSJ, M.M.Ed., assistant professor of music and chair of the department, at or 215.242.7194.
