“Music is a big part of the holiday tradition of bringing people together in song, whether that’s a church choir, or street caroling. It’s a big part of everyone’s memories, and we love to bring high-quality musicians together for people to share in those traditions, particularly at the Fitton Center, to enjoy that festive spirit, and come together in song,” MacKenzie-Thurley said.
The concert will follow the gallery openings of two new exhibitions at the Fitton - “Human Rights: Derechos Humanos,” and “Mirrors and Veils.”
