Holiday Celebrations Around the World

Between St. Nicholas Day on December 6 and Twelfth Night on January 6, the world celebrates many festivals including the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah and Christmas. In some regions, St. Nicholas (a/k/a Santa Claus or Father Christmas) brings gifts to children on December 6. In other regions, The Three Kings bring gifts on January 6. This year the Winter Solstice is on December 21 and Hanukkah begins on December 12. All of these events are celebrated in a variety of colorful ways throughout the world. Join us as we sing about these celebrations and recount local holiday traditions. Music from “Bach to Broadway” will be presented including favorite carols in new and traditional settings with an opportunity to sing along. J.S. Bach, John Rutter, Randall Thompson, Moses Hogan, Ariel Ramirez, Herbert Howells and Jerry Herman are some of the composers to be featured.

All concerts begin at 3 p.m. and will be held at the Lake Forest Sun and Sail Club 24752 Toledo Way, Lake Forest, California.

Tickets are $15.00 and may be ordered here.
