Carolers to Serenade Dupont Metro Riders

Look for members of the Cathedral Choral Society on Friday at the Dupont Circle Metro.

As you make your way home from work Friday, you may want to consider a detour to the Dupont Circle Metro Station on the Red Line: a group of carolers will be singing at the station's exit.

The Cathedral Choral Society has three metro performances planned for the weekend.

Friday's caroling event at the Dupont Circle metro station will begin at 6 p.m. at the Q Street entrance/exit and is expected to last an hour.

Look for the carolers at the following locations over the weekend:

  • 6 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Dupont Circle Metro Station
  • 11 a.m. Dec. 8 at the Friendship Heights Metro Station
  • 1:30 p.m. Dec. 9 at Grosvenor/Strathmore Metro Station

The public caroling precedes the choral group's annual holiday concerts series. The Washington's National Cathedral will be the venue for part of this year's series, The Joy of Christmas.

According to a press release, The Joy of Christmas, "features the traditional Advent wreath procession and carols for all to sing, and premieres a new carol by British composer Ben Parry. The performance includes the Washington Symphonic Brass and guest choir the Langley High School Madrigals."

Performances are as follows:

Dec. 15: Washington National Cathedral at noon and 4 p.m.
Dec. 16: Washington National Cathedral at 4 p.m.

The fourth event is a family program: A Dickens Christmas at Strathmore at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 17.
