The Kansas Wesleyan Music Department has announced the theme for Christmas by Candlelight.

When He Comes to Reign will be the theme for this year's musical holiday event, which is scheduled for 5 p.m. Dec. 4 in Sams Chapel. Christmas by Candlelight is open to the public at no charge and no ticketing process is required.

“Christmas by Candlelight is always a highlight of Salina’s Christmas season,” said James McAllister, Music Department chair. “We look forward to seeing friends, family, alumni and community members at the performance. Working with high schools from throughout the area is a tremendous opportunity to open the Christmas season.”

The Dec. 4 performance will include high school musicians from Hutchinson, Sacred Heart, Salina Central, Salina South, and Southeast of Saline.

This year’s Christmas by Candlelight marks 40 years since the KWU Christmas concert took on that name, according to information from the university.
