An Old-Fashioned Christmas
Wed, Dec 6 - Wed, Dec 13
Christmas allows us pause to reflect on the passage of time… to slip into the joy of a memory, where our minds enjoy the scenes and events dear to the heart.Please join us this year as we delight in the songs and stories tied to our Christmas tradition, featuring the Great American Songbook with its familiar cadences of Christmas verse and jubilant sound of carols…such classics as "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "White Christmas", "Silver Bells", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", and "Winter Wonderland". In the thrill of anticipation and the bustle of preparation, these songs hold our enjoyments, affections and hope -- and "Old-Fashioned Christmas"!
