Asked to pick a favorite from all of Classical MPR's holiday specials this year, I respond by playing the Dad card: "Which one of your children do you love the most?"
The joy of the St. Olaf Christmas Festival earlier this month, the anticipation of the live broadcast of Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, and the celebration we'll have with a rare live Minnesota Orchestra broadcast celebrating New Year's Day … it's impossible to pick!
But one of my absolute favorites comes up Thursday, Dec. 15, at 11 a.m., when eight talented guys step in front of the microphones at MacPhail's Antonello Hall in Minneapolis for a Christmas with Cantus special that we'll broadcast live on Classical MPR.
A treat this year amongst Cantus's glorious songs: they'll offer you their best white-elephant gift tips!
The Cantus website has ticket information about Christmas with Cantus concerts.
