Joy to the World! The Stories Behind Our Favorite Christmas Carols

joy7 pm - 8:30 pm via Zoom
Folk tunes, pagan revels, and medieval hymns have all contributed to the musical treasure we enjoy every year during the Christmas season. Join John Maietta as he brings back this fascinating program to once again reveal the colorful stories behind twenty of our favorite Yuletide carols. Among other fascinating facts, you’ll learn who King Wenceslas really was… how a partridge got into a pear tree… why a Pennsylvania pastor immortalized the visit of the three kings to the baby Jesus… and how a snowy, starry night in an Austrian village inspired a beloved song of Christmas joy and peace. Registration begins November 15 and is required for Zoom link.
