Christmas at Bethany Concert

Christmas at Bethany concerts are the college's annual Christmas celebration featuring music for band, strings, handbells, choirs and audience celebrating the birth of Christ. This year, the Bethany Lutheran College Music Department presents their annual Christmas at Bethany concerts in Trinity Chapel on Thurs., Dec. 5 and Fri., Dec. 6 at 5 p.m., Sat., Dec. 7 and Sun., Dec. 8 at 3 p.m. The concert will include participation by the Concert Band and Chamber Orchestra directed by Benjamin Faugstad, the Mary Martha Singers and Handbell Choir directed by Ann Fredrickson, and the Concert Choir directed by Dennis Marzolf. 

A freewill offering will be collected at the concert. 

Admission is free but advance reservations are required; most performances sell out well before the date arrives. The chapel doors will open one hour before the concert for general admission seating. If you have questions about this event, please contact BLC's Coordinator of Fine Arts at 507-344-7365 or 



Where should we park?

The best parking options for events in Trinity Chapel are lots 5, 6, and 7. Cold or wet weather?-Use the campus tunnels from Honsey Hall or Meyer Hall to get to Trinity Chapel in comfort. Drivers are welcome to drop off concert-goers at the door of Trinity Chapel before finding a parking space.  

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, but it saves time. You may bring printed tickets to the event to be scanned at the door, or you will be checked in manually by providing your party's name. 


Are walk-ins welcome?

Yes. Seating availability for walk-ins depends on how many concert goers turn back unused tickets. If seating is completely full in the chapel, all others are welcome to stand in the narthex/lobby to hear the concert.
