What Sweeter Music: December 4, 10, & 11

Benjamin Britten composed A Ceremony of Carols on a Swedish cargo vessel in 1942. He was sailing from the States home to England at a time when U-Boat activity was intensifying. The women of The Singers will be performing the original version for treble voices, along with harpist Min Kim. Of course, many traditional carols are also featured alongside joyous and contemplative music for this special time of year.

12/4, 3pm – Wayzata Community Church; 12/10, 7:30pm – St. Olaf Catholic, Minneapolis; 12/11, 2pm – Nativity of Our Lord, St. Paul
