Christmas Eve Services 

When: Sat., Dec. 24 2011
A year shy of celebrating its 70th anniversary, Duke Chapel is one of the most recognizable buildings in North Carolina. No matter your spiritual or scholastic persuasion, the chapel's willful anachronism is a spectacle of the campus' conviction. As such, there are few places more special to take in a musical performance, and there's likely no better month for it than this one, with an annual presentation of Handel's Messiah and a particularly busy schedule on Christmas Eve. The traditional "Lessons & Carols" late-night service runs from 11 p.m.–midnight, preceded by an open rehearsal for the Christmas Eve Community Choir from 9–11 p.m. There's also a children's service from 3–4 p.m. and "Carols & Holy Communion" from 5:30–6:30 p.m. All of these are free and open to the public. —Grayson Currin
