Classical New England — 2013/12/07

With the Boston Pops taking over from the Boston Symphony for December, there will be no live symphony broadcasts until January 11, 2014. Rather than give us the same "Holiday Pops" concert four weeks in a row (followed by some filler on January 4), Classical New England is filling the slots with various Christmas programs and other things. There are also other special programs during the month. Here's a link to the page that lists them all. You can see for yourself, but here's what they say about this evening:

Saturday, Dec. 7

7pm: A Choral Christmas with Stile Antico

The award-winning choir from London pays a visit to St. Paul's Church in Harvard Square for a concert of radiant sacred music for the Christmas season.
Note that the programming this evening starts at 7:00, like the regular pre-concert programming, not at 8:00 like the BSO concerts themselves.

So far I don't see anything to tell us about January 4, but I'm guessing that, like December 28, it'll be a rerun of some earlier BSO concert. Also, on Monday, December 9 at 8:00 p.m., we get the repeat of the BSO concert of November 30 with Brahms and Beethoven.

And there is the ongoing Winter Orgy®Period on WHRB, which I noted in the preceding post.
