Bishop’s University’s (BU) St. Mark’s Chapel Choir will be putting on its two annual Carol Services this weekend, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. Director Sarah Heath will conduct the 22-member choral group in a series of anthems peppered throughout many traditional Christmas carols that all attending may sing along to. The event will be candle-lit and feature a local trumpeter, Nicolas Leblanc, and the Chapel’s organ, played by BU’s organist Pam Eby.
In years past, only one Carol Service was held, but it was so popular that two rows of extra chairs had to be placed in the aisle. “It was a bit of a hazard,” Heath admitted. So, they decided to do it twice. Heath has been heading the service for 11 years and also ran it back when she was a student at BU.
