Christmas Eve in Los Angeles will be marked today by a music and dance program at The Music Center and traditional Masses and church services celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

New groups include the contemporary dance company BODYTRAFFIC, which will perform an ensemble piece, “o2joy”; the Korean-American indie folk-rock band Run River North; MoForro, which will perform a medley of holiday songs in the style of Brazilian forro; and Mostly Kosher, which will perform the Hanukkah song “Ma’oz Tzur.”

The celebration will be televised live by KOCE-TV Channel 50 from 3-6 p.m. and replayed from 9 p.m.-midnight.

A Christmas Eve Family Mass will be celebrated at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles at 4 p.m. Christmas Eve Masses will be celebrated in Spanish at 7 p.m. and in English at 9 p.m.

A Midnight Mass will be celebrated at midnight, preceded by a program of Christmas carols sung by the cathedral choir beginning at 11:30 p.m.
