Longing to Be Up North: Christmas Carols and the American Imagination

Monday, December 15th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Katherine Baber, University of Redlands, Musicologist and Assistant Professor of Music History

On Monday, December 15 we welcome musicologist and assistant professor of music history, Katherine Baber from the University of Redlands for a harmonious exploration of music for the Christmas season. Together we'll discover the meaning behind our favorite holiday tunes, such as why we're always dreaming of a "White Christmas." And what Christmas celebration would be complete without carols? This festive forum will also feature a special sing-along led by a string quartet of Redlands students, under the direction of Artist Professor and RSO Concertmaster Jeanne Skrocki.

So gather your friends and family, and grab your jingle bells, because this festive forum is sure to put you in the holiday spirit!
