From christmascantata.us (because why reinvent the wheel?)
Gracias Christmas Cantata is coming back to Jacksonville, filled with cherished music, unforgettable stages, and a brand new Act 2. See the Nativity story told as an epic opera, experience a heartwarming musical based on “The Gift of the Magi,” and let the glory of Handel’s Oratorio “Messiah” wash over you.
You can now reserve seating by making a donation to the Christmas Cantata. Our performances are always free, but they’re on a first-come, first-served basis and seating is limited.
FUN FACT: Messiah College is a private, Christian school in Mechanicsburg, Penn.
BONUS FUN FACT: The college’s mascot is Fandango the Falcon.
