The groundbreaking program from Jeannette Sorrell and Sylvain Bergeron, now a beloved holiday tradition! Mystical Scottish Gregorian chant mixes with ancient pagan carols, joyous dances and fiddle tunes. A colorful band of bagpipes, flute, strings and Celtic harp joins the exquisite Apollo’s Singers. Only two local performances before AF takes the program to the Metropolitan Museum in New York!
