Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Christmas at Concordia concerts. All concerts are now full and no tickets are available at this time.

While no waiting list is maintained, a limited number of tickets are expected to be returned in the days immediately preceding the concerts. Any available tickets will be held at the "Will Call" table at St. John Lutheran Church, which will open 60 minutes before each concert. These tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Please join us on December 4, 2016 for the Scholarship Parade of Homes and the Christmas Open House and Tree Lighting.

We wish you a blessed Advent and merry Christmas!

All concerts are held at St. John Lutheran Church, 919 N. Columbia Ave. Seward, Neb.

What should I bring to the concert?

Each person in your party should bring their individually numbered concert ticket. These will be collected at the sanctuary door for admission. A ticket is required for each person attending. The confirmation email does NOT serve as a ticket.

What shouldn’t I bring into the concert?

Jackets, strollers, infant carriers and other large items may be left in one of St. John's coat rooms. There is a coat room on the lower level next to the main stairs, another at the top of the stairs to the right across from the bathrooms, and a third off the narthex opposite the sanctuary.

Where can I park?

The concert is at St. John Lutheran Church, which is on the corner of Columbia Avenue and Hillcrest Drive in Seward. St. John has a large parking lot west of the building off Hillcrest Drive. Other adjacent spaces are available on Concordia'’'s campus in the circle drive in front of Weller Hall and behind the Heartfelt Memorial—east of the corner off Hillcrest. Additional parking is available on campus.

How early should I arrive?

Doors will open 90 minutes before the 3:00 concerts and 60 minutes before the 7:00 concerts. Early arrival is recommended for large groups who wish to sit together, as the sanctuary fills very quickly.

Where can I sit?

A few seats will be set aside for guests with limited mobility and other special groups, but most of the sanctuary is open seating. Seat selection is on a first come, first served basis

Is there a dress code?

Concert attendees may dress however they see fit. Given that the concerts are held in a church sanctuary and are a celebration of Christ’s birth, many concert guests prefer to wear church attire.

What if I don’t need all of my tickets?

Tickets may be returned by calling Concordia’s Advancement Office at 402-643-7170.
