LaGrange College offers virtual Lessons and Carols to UMCs

12/9/2020

United Methodist-related LaGrange College is sharing the school's musical gifts with our South Georgia Conference connection.

On December 6, LaGrange presented “Lessons & Carols” to the community. Following that performance, the school is digitally sharing the individual components of the 60-minute production for churches to use in virtual worship. Please note that you can use individual selections and/or the entire Lessons & Carols. 

"It is our desire to help supply beautiful musical content for Advent and Epiphany, so we’re packaging it to allow for great flexibility by congregations looking to augment their virtual worship services," said Dr. Susanna Baxter, LaGrange College President.

Editor's Note: Presenting this program with excellence visually, musically, and most importantly, safely, was no small feat for the LaGrange College music department. The students recorded their vocals individually. For the video, they kept 6 feet apart from one another in all directions and over 16 feet away from the technical crew. On cue, the students would remove their mask and put it in their folder or pocket, and lip-sync to the song. At the end of each camera take, they would immediately put their masks back on and remain silent until they were ready for the next "take."
