LESSONS & CAROLS HOLIDAY PERFORMANCE
Thursday, December 20th from 10:30-11:30 am in the Trinity Chapel
Please plan to join us for the annual presentation of Trinity Episcopal School’s Lessons and Carols. Plan to arrive early for the best parking and seating options. This performance traditionally packs the house with standing room only. For this reason, if you plan to arrive early and save seats, someone must remain with the seats you are saving at all times. Un-manned seats are considered open even if there is a scarf or purse in the seat unless at least one person is sitting with the scarf or purse. EXCEPTION: Spring Event VIP Package Winners will have special reserved seating marked. Want to save seats without having to sit there to save them? Bid on the VIP Package at this year’s Spring Event. 🙂 Thank you for helping to make the seating opportunities as fair and equitable as possible.
