No matter what tradition you observe, winter holidays are celebrated around the world with music.  Bill starts in the 12th century, takes us through medieval Italy, evokes a Mexican Christmas, visits Paris and Polynesia, brings us a taste of jazz and even shares Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors.

Week of December 2, 2019 - Invitation to the Dance, Part II Five hours of music composed for the stage, opera, and ballet — or music composed for dramatic representations. We start with Jean-Baptiste Lully, an Italian-born French composer, instrumentalist, and as Bills says, “the most ‘dancingist’ composer who ever lived.” We’ll also focus on ballet music by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Schubert and even Beethoven!
