Eastern European Christmas Concert at Middle Village

Location: Middle Village
Registration: Not required

Kind acts and Christmas go hand-in-hand. Please join us in celebration of Christmas with traditional folkloric music and songs sung in the different languages of Eastern Europe. Born in the mountains and countryside of various regions, this music was passed on orally from one generation to the next and speaks simply and powerfully about love and longing, disappointment and joy, often weaving together elaborate metaphors. Musical instruments include the accordion, violin, and flute.
