Snow, star-filled nights, wind…nature reserves some of her most touching and intimate moments for the winter. The Christmas season takes center stage with Holst’s Christmas Day and three carols by the comical genius, P.D.Q. Bach. This concert will feature our Composer-in-Residence, Linda Gingrich, in several arrangements of seasonal favorites. John Rutter, Ástor Piazzolla, and Harold Darke will also contribute to our festival of the beauty and magic of winter.
