    Folk tunes, pagan revels, and medieval hymns have all contributed to the musical treasure we enjoy every year during the Christmas season.  This program presents the colorful stories behind twenty of our favorite Yuletide carols.  Among other fascinating facts, you’ll learn who King Wenceslas really was… how a partridge got into a pear tree… why a Pennsylvania pastor immortalized the visit of the three kings to the baby Jesus… and how a snowy, starry night in an Austrian village inspired a beloved song of Christmas joy and peace. Presented by John Maietta.

    This adult program is also suitable for children in grade 4+.
