After my performance here last year, I was immediately invited to return! This concert, uniquely situated on Thanksgiving weekend and the first Sunday of Advent, celebrates with just a taste of all of the glorious music of this time of year. Come hear some familiar favorites and some that will be new to you! Admission is free (a free-will offering will be gratefully accepted) and all are welcome.
