Christmastime Is Here

Ragazzi Continuo presents its 2016 holiday concert, Christmastime Is Here, a celebration of all that the season brings and means to each of us. Familiar Christmas carols are joined by popular favorites such as the Perry Como classic "Home For The Holidays," Hebrew psalms set by Italian Renaissance composer Salamone Rossi, and winter-inspired songs from around the globe. You'll hear Vince Guaraldi's jazzy harmonies in his beloved Peanuts tune, full-throated Russian singing on Rachmaninoff's "Bogoroditse Devo," and jaunty French exuberance in "Il est ne, le Divin Enfant." We are especially proud to be premiering a newly commissioned work by local composer Derek Sup, an arrangement of the English folk tune "Oh, The Snow It Melts The Soonest." Join us this December for a concert of memories, meanings, good cheer and irrepressible spirit. Put some holly in your holidays!
