The Historic Ephrata Cloister welcomes the holiday season with the traditional music program Christmas at the Cloister. Held in the original 1741 Saal or Meetinghouse, the “lessons and carols” style program combines the Christmas story with seasonal music and familiar carols for the congregation. The program features the talents of the Ephrata Cloister Chorus under the direction of Mark Herr, with guest musicians Randy Kochel and Amanda Wells on hammer dulcimer and guitar. Following the program, participants are invited to enjoy mulled cider and cookies in the Visitor Center. Seating is limited, and advance tickets are required!
