Carpe Diem String Ensemble presents Anissa Nielsen performing Schubert's beautiful Ave Maria at the Parrott Gallery Annual Christmas Concert.
This year’s concert is all about things that immediately conjure up the image of Christmas, no matter what time of the year we hear them mentioned: caroling, sleigh rides, Bethlehem, reindeer, the Nutcracker ballet, manger, holly and ivy. You will hear and can sing along with traditional Christmas carols, enjoy hearing some Mozart accompanied by real sleigh bells, imagine the charming sugar plum fairies dancing to Tchaikovsky. There will be a humorous mash-up of Christmas carols and classical tunes, as well as a rousing fiddle rendition of Jingle Bells.
Be sure to join us for this free concert on Saturday, December 8, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. All are welcome.
