King’s Chapel Christmas Concert

As in years past, we will again be returning to King’s Chapel for one of their annual Christmas concerts. This year the concert will take place on Tuesday, December 19th. We will meet at King’s Chapel downtown on the corner of Tremont and School Streets at 12:00 Noon on the 19th, and the half hour concert will begin at 12:15 PM. They will be performing Handel’s “The Half-Hour Messiah”. After the concert we will have lunch somewhere in the immediate vicinity of the chapel and we can decide where that will be at the time. The place doesn’t matter as much as just being together to share the Christmas spirit. Many of you have been with us before for this cherished event and we hope that some of the new members can join us this time for the joy of the concert and the pleasure of our splendid company at this once a year holiday celebration. For more information on King’s Chapel, and their concerts, see kings-chapel.org.

The January date listed previously has been cancelled. The third Monday was chosen as there were no other LGBT events on that day. This will be held at S & S Deli until further notice, depending on projected attendance. (If there are 30 or more people, it will be at Ryles.) S & S Deli is at 1334 Cambridge Street, Cambridge; Ryles is across the street (to the south) at 212 Hampshire Street.
