Rancho Santa Margarita – The Saddleback College Music Department will present A Feast of Lights on December 3rd and 4th in the McKinney Theatre. The chorale ensembles, under the direction of Dr. Scott Farthing, and the symphony orchestra, under the direction of Branden Muresan, come together for this very popular and festive holiday program of vocal and orchestral music for all ages to enjoy. These holiday festivities include a traditional wassail catered and served by the Saddleback College Culinary Arts program being between performances.
Diwali popularly known as the "festival of lights," is a festival celebrated between mid-October and mid-November. For Hindus, Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes. For Jains, Diwali marks the attainment of moksha or nirvana by Mahavira in 527 BC
Diwali is an official holiday in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Malaysia, Singapore,and Fiji.
Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.
The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical Menorah consists of eight branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for use, as using the Hanukkah lights themselves is forbidden.
Dates are Saturday, December 3rd at 2 & 5 pm and Sunday, December 4th at 2 & 5 pm. Tickets are $20 general admission; $18 students/seniors and can be purchased by calling the ticket office at 949-582-4656 or online at www.saddleback.edu/arts.
