Everyone is invited to attend this free evening of festive music to brighten the Christmas season! The performance will feature the three string orchestras at St. Francis Music Center.

The audience will recognize many Christmas carols, such as Overture to the Nutcracker, French Carol, Jingle Bells, Ukrainian Bell Carol, Pat-a-Pan, Veni, Veni and more. One of the pieces, English Carol Collage, begins with a lively fiddle carol, which intertwines with many beloved carols. The St. Francis Sonata, Mezzo, and Maestoso orchestras are under the direction of Melissa VonItter. The St. Francis Chamber Orchestra is directed by Amanda Jansen. Both directors are faculty members at St. Francis Music Center. The concert will also feature the St. Francis Brass Ensemble. This event is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. For more information, please call the Music Center at (320) 632-0637. St. Francis Music Center is a sponsored ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls.
