Holidays a cappella

December 2013

Our ever-surprising mix of holiday music is our most popular event each season.  Anne Heider, the esteemed Artistic Director Emerita of Bella Voce, will take the helm as Guest Music Director, bringing her renowned musicality to traditional European and American carols (including her own setting of a haunting shape-note melody), Christmas spirituals, folksongs, Hanukkah delights, and more.  Bask in familiar melodies and enjoy lush, inspiring holiday music that you won’t hear anywhere else. Bring your family!
