Candlelight Carols & Messiah Ticket Announcement

October 20, 2023



Dear Trinity Church and friends,

With a wonderful 2023-2024 Program Year already underway, we are delighted to announce ticketing for our treasured Advent-Christmas traditions, including:

  • Candlelight Carols on Sat., Dec. 16 at 4 pm and 7 pm, and Sun., Dec. 17, at 2 pm; and
  • the Concert of Handel’s Messiah on Sun., Dec. 10, at 2 pm. 

All tickets will be sold online on Eventbrite. That is the only way to get tickets. We will again ticket all these events with half the admissions regular-priced, and half the admissions offered for a reduced price ($4/ticket).  Likewise, all attendees – whether discounted or not – will once more be ticketed by section, rather than by seat, and there will be an equal number of regular-priced and reduced-priced seats in every section. There will be no distinction between ticket type at the door, and, within sections, all attendees will be seated first-come, first-served.

To honor the spirit of these plans, we ask all who can afford to pay, to purchase their seats at the regular price.  Reduced price seat reservations will be limited to four per registration.  We anticipate all these events will sell out.

The ticketing schedule is as follows:

  • Regular-priced tickets will go on sale to our parish community Fri., Oct. 6 at 12 pm ET. 
  • Reduced-price tickets will become available to our parish community on Fri., Oct. 13 at 12 pm ET.
  • All remaining tickets will become available to the public on Fri., Oct. 20 at 12 pm ET.

Be on the lookout for the registration links in our weekly Thursday “This Week at Trinity” eblasts. Sign up to receive those messages here.

Though we will build on what we learned in the past few years, operating these beloved programs in this way remains new. Therefore, your forbearance will inevitably be required. Do know that all of us privileged to serve you will be aiming to meet your grace with our very best efforts as, together, we again make our way to the Christ child’s manger crib.

For ticketing questions, please contact Alison Poor at apoor@trinitychurchboston.org.
