Thanksgiving/Harvest display at the College Chapel
Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church
Decorating the chancel has been an 80-year tradition at Warren Wilson College, where a variety of work crews have created a beautiful display showing the wealth of the harvests from the college farm and garden. The display will culminate with a food drive where the congregation will bring canned goods and other items to help the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry provide food for our neighbors in the area who have needs. All are welcome to join this very meaningful service of Thanksgiving!
The Warren Wilson College Choir will perform Gabriel Faure’s beautiful “Requiem” in the College Chapel. This program of all-French music, free and open to the public, will include Louis Vierne’s “Kyrie” and a solo organ piece by Maurice Durufle and provides the audience the opportunity to view the annual Harvest Display in the Chapel. For more information call Music Professor Steven Williams at (828) 771-3048.
