A “Christmas by Candlelight” concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday in St. John’s-Grace Episcopal Church, 51 Colonial Circle, will feature two outstanding young soloists, soprano Emily Tworek Helenbrook and tenor Cory James Gallagher, in a program of inspirational holiday music dedicated to those affected by the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

The concert will begin with the lighting of a candle for each of the lives lost. Writer Amy Gallagher, Cory’s sister, will offer poetry and reflections between the songs. A free-will offering will be accepted. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the families of the shooting victims.
