The Historic Ephrata Cloister welcomes the holiday season with the traditional music program Christmas at the Cloister on Monday, December 12, and Tuesday, December 13. The program is held twice each night at 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. Held in the original 1741 Saal or Meetinghouse at the historic Ephrata Cloister, the “lessons and carols” style program combines the Christmas story with seasonal music and familiar carols for the congregation. The program features the talents of the Ephrata Cloister Chorus under the direction of Mark Herr. This year’s guest musicians will be the Woodlands Trio. Following the program, participants are invited to enjoy mulled cider and cookies in the Visitor Center. Seating is limited, and advance tickets are required.
Tickets may be purchased by stopping by or calling the Museum Store ((717-733-2592) on Wednesdays from 12 – 4 pm, Thursdays – Saturdays from 10 – 4, and Sundays from 12 – 4. Tickets are also available online.
