Sweet Tea Shakespeare presents “Behold: A Folk Christmas Cantata”

Behold: A Folk Christmas Cantata by Sweet Tea Shakespeare

December 4, 2019 | Show begins at 7:00 p.m. | Music and merriment begins at 6:15 p.m.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s annual Christmas concert returns, this time with a splash of Honey. Featuring the familiar gospel music that’s always at the heart of our Behold, our 2019 offering includes a special focus on the Mary story and the women of Sweet Tea Shakespeare (but dudes are around, too). Behold’s reputation as a reflective, stirring, and heartfelt Christmastime celebration always holds true.

Our celebration of the winter season—part Gospel, part Sweet Tea magic—is an evening of communion meant to warm your hearts and focus your minds on Advent and Christmas. Featuring Andrew Peterson’s folk cantata Behold the Lamb of God rounded out with songs both traditional and new, Behold tells Old and New Testament stories with simplicity and grace, during this time of joy and reflection.

Changes due to inclement weather will be announced on our website ( and Facebook page (
