It’s the final To Do of the year and the decade…wow. You likely have lots going on, I mean the music possibilities alone…. so let’s just get to it.
Tonight, enjoy some a cappella from EightFold. This 8 person group performs Perfect Octave: Holiday Concert which is an ambitious
seasonal program centered around Francis Poulenc’s Quatre Motets Pour Le Temps de Noël. The program also includes favorites from traditional ceremonies of carols, as well as from the Great American Songbook. And you are not totally off the hook because there will be some audience participation. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are $18-$25.
Friday night at CHAW is another opportunity for artists to hone their figure drawing skills.
Step Afrika! is sold out. I warned you!
Or maybe Christmas Caroling at the Wharf is more your style. Strolling carolers and Santa and S’mores. PLEASE don’t drive there.
Sunday Southwest residents can skate for free at the ice rink at The Wharf. Bring proof of residency, of course.
Hanukkah begins at sundown on Sunday and the Hill Havurah and the Capitol Hill BID host the annual Menorah Lighting at 5 p.m. The BID’s “men in blue” will serve hot chocolate, coffee, potato latkes and jelly doughnuts as musicians perform traditional Hanukkah songs. The event takes place on the steps of the Church of the Reformation at 212 East Capitol Street, but the menorah will then spend the next 7 nights of the holiday over in the Eastern Market Plaza next to Little George, our holiday tree.
There you have it. I hope your holidays are sweet and your new year even sweeter. Be well.
