An Appalachian Christmas

Hailed as “one of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music” by the Los Angeles Times, Mark O’Connor has lived an extraordinary life as a musical artist. The multi-Grammy-winning musician and composer, best known for his million-selling Appalachia Waltz, has in addition written nine concertos and two symphonies and has authored a new violin method that has been used by tens of thousands of children. This event evokes O’Connor’s experience growing up in a musical household, where Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of carols, fiddling, bluegrass, and other traditional American music.
