First Church member Buzz Gagnebin is a generous patron of the arts. He engaged three musical groups to prepare videos of Christmas caroling for First Church families to enjoy as we celebrate Christmas. Find links below to the videos and lyric sheets so you can sing along. Thank you, Buzz, for this wonderful Christmas gift!

The Neave Trio, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, are no strangers to First Church; they performed a benefit concert in our sanctuary on behalf of First Church’s Homeless Ministries in 2019. Here they perform several beloved carols as chamber music for violin, cello, and piano. Find the video here and the lyric sheet here.
