The following was provided by The Hill School.

During the weekend of Friday, Dec. 12 through Sunday, Dec. 14, The Hill School will host two of the school’s traditional holiday music performances, the Winter Holiday Concert and the Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols. 

Both are open to the public.

On Friday, The Hill School Winter Holiday Concert will take place at 7:15 p.m. in the school's Center for the Arts off Beech Street.

The concert is free and open to the public. The School’s flute choir will play prelude music in the lobby prior to the show, which will begin with five pieces performed by The Hill School Orchestra. 

Selections include a piece by Vivaldi and music from The Lord of the Dance. 

Following a brief intermission, the Jazz Ensemble will conclude the concert with six pieces. 

Each piece will include soloist performances, and the final song, “Jingle Bell Rock,” will be directed by Hill School sixth form (senior) student Erica Yu. 
Sunday's service will take place here,
at The Hill School's Alumni Chapel.

Members of the Hilltones and Hilltrebles, two of the School’s vocal music groups, will participate in the second half of the show, as well.

The traditional Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols will take place on Sunday, Dec. 14 at 5 p.m. in the Alumni Chapel and is open to the community. 

An organ prelude will begin at 4:30 p.m. The hour-long service will feature lessons, carols, and hymns traditional to the Advent season. 

The Hill School’s chamber choir, the school’s advanced vocal ensemble, will lead the members of the school’s chorus as well as the community choir, a group comprised of Hill students, faculty, and other members of the Hill community.

Participants in the Pottstown Historic Home Christmas Tour are invited to attend the service as a part of the tour.
