Travel to the Christmas markets of Prague with the CZECH AND MORAVIAN CHRISTMAS CAROLS with Czech composer Jan Jirásek and the globally renowned JITRO choir. Coming from a culture of Christmas spirit including festively-lit city celebrations and the scent of fresh gingerbread wafting through the air, the JITRO Choir performs carols from both Christian and their native folk traditions. Using traditional instruments and a balance of lively and introspective carols, Jirásek and JITRO bring a distinctly European experience to the holiday season.
DASHING features a collection of the most convivial orchestral, vocal, and jazz works by PARMA composers. From a soothing rendition of O Holy Night for saxophone and orchestra to the distinct staccato entrance of Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy performed by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra and much more, DASHING has something to offer for every moment of the season.
Enjoy these tunes, stunning piano performances by Matej Meštrović, renditions of the Ukrainian folktales as told by orchestra and composer Mona Lyn Reese, celebratory carols from Renaissance Men, and much more. Whether you’re trimming the Christmas tree, wrapping up holiday shopping, or just taking time to relax with family during the holiday season, Classical Holiday has the melodies to set the holiday spirit.
