Rejoice in a festive meeting of old friends and new as you refill your creative reservoir heading into this wintery holiday season. Celebrate the season with unusual, rarely-heard music for the festivities; a program that balances novelty and tradition, mystery and jubilation, and familiar melodies with innovative new sounds. Our halls are decked and our voices are warmed! Special guest Kathryn Harms, harp.
