Tuesday’s program includes A Christmas Festival composed in 1950 by Leroy Anderson, David Holsinger’s heart-warming A Childhood Hymn and concludes with the always popular collection of Christmas favorites, Home for Christmas, by John Higgins.
The public of all ages is cordially welcomed to hear the Winds of Christmas in Christ Chapel with the Gustavus and Vasa Wind Orchestras, Tuesday, December 10, at 10:00 a.m. Admission to the Winds of Christmas is free.
