In the darkest time of the year, cultures and traditions all over the world sing to celebrate and remember. To end an absence as long as a winter’s night, Mendelssohn Chorus is happy to announce that our first concert back in person will be our treasured program: A Feast of Carols. A longtime tradition for Philadelphia families and an exciting celebration for newcomers too, young and old alike gather as we sing music of winter’s dawn and rebirth.
