About the Program

December 2008

Just as our communities are more pan-cultural and our family units less traditional, so the idea of what makes for an old-fashioned Christmas has expanded. We're drawn as always by the familiar flavors of the past, but intrigued by the new seasonings of the season. Everything old is new again with a coast-to-coast sampler of the country's best choirs. It's a Choral Christmas Card.
