Inspired by the overwhelming popularity of last season’s Music of Downton Abbey concert and anticipating Season 5 of the PBS television drama, we return to the Gothic splendor of St. Mark’s Cathedral for a program of post-Edwardian English choral and orchestral music for Christmas. Lady Alice returns to provide the history of each piece and pair each selection with memorable events from the story line of the Downton Abbey series. Audience sing-alongs and holiday photos are planned—maybe even a visit from St. Nicholas!
[NOTE: This concert is not part of the regular 2014-2015 season, and so is not included in the season ticket package.]
