BarnArts is delighted to again offer our beloved Winter Carols indoors in the historic First Universalist Church and Society of Barnard. Conductor Michael Zsoldos has been rehearsing with 25 vaccinated singers since mid-November to bring you this celebration of the season. While we are not having our Youth Chorale perform indoors or all-sings with the congregation, we will have our musical performances with Trifolium, Mark van Gulden & Kathleen Dolan, plus Michael Zsoldos on the saxophone with a special guest. A bonus outdoor Chorale performance is also planned for Saturday, Dec 18th in Woodstock, to share the joy with more during these compromising times (more info below).
