Here’s what’s coming up this week:
Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m.: All Is Bright. Lynne Warfel hosts an hour of gorgeous, contemplative choral music that tells the traditional Christmas story with songs about angels, the star and the manger scene.

Thursday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m.: A Choral Christmas with Stile Antico. Celebrate Christmas with the sound of soaring voices.
