Upcoming Lyceums


Sunday, December 8, 12-1pm

We will explore the life and music of Sir David Willcocks, (1919-2015), a British choral conductor, composer, and arranger.  His revolutionary arrangements remain the most used throughout the world during this sacred season.  Several will be featured in First Parish’s 8pm Christmas Eve service.  Please welcome our own Brad Conner for what promises to be a fascinating look at this multi-talented individual, who played a pivotal role in the Battle of Normandy.
