This longstanding tradition at The Riverside Church has become an essential part of Christmas in New York City. This service of music and light combines carillon, organ, harp, and all of the choirs of The Riverside Church, culminating in a ritual sharing of candlelight illuminating the Nave. The Candlelight Carol Festival will take place in person at The Riverside Church in the City of New York and is also viewable anywhere in the world via livestream. Musical prelude begins at 3:00 PM.
