"Authentic Baroque performances at its best. If there has to be one Christmas concert, this is it." - The New York Times
For a Holiday treat that is a little out of the usual, join us for A Baroque Christmas with the Aulos Ensemble and special guest, soprano Julianne Baird. This group has performed annual Christmas concerts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that have been called "one of the most charming musical celebrations of the season in New York."

"Its seven bass voices and two of its three tenors sang such close harmonies and with such subtle nuances that they sounded like one deep, rich, resonant and proud voice." - The New York Times
It has been more than fifteen years since Paul Simon made his initial trip to South Africa and met Joseph Shabalala and the other members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo in a recording studio in Johannesburg. Simon incorporated the traditional sounds of black South Africa into the Graceland album, a project regarded by many as seminal to today's explosive interest in World Music. Ladysmith Black Mambazo has come to represent the traditional culture of South Africa. Considered South Africa's cultural emissaries at home and around the world, Black Mambazo accompanied the future President Nelson Mandela, and then-South African President F.W. de Klerk, to the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway in 1993. Mambazo sang again at President Mandela's inauguration in May of 1994. They are a national treasure of the new South Africa in part because they embody the traditions suppressed in the old South Africa.
