Ensemble Galilei Christmas Concerts

Sue Richards, Celtic harp, and Carolyn Surrick, viola da gamba, will be joined this year by three fantastic players for yet another Celtic Christmas concert next weekend. Scottish fiddler Ryan McKasson from Seattle, uilleann piper Isaac Alderson from New York City, and bodhran/banjo player Jackie Moran from Chicago fill out the group. Ryan and Jackie are permanent members of the group, Isaac has set in with us before. This is the 20th anniversary of EG’s Christmas concerts- who knew we would last so long!

There are three chances to see us: Saturday December 11 at 2:00 and 7:30 at St.John’s College Great Hall in Annapolis, and on Sunday the 12th at the National Gallery of Art in DC. Tickets for Saturday: call 410.841.2494, there are still some left. Saturday’s concerts will each be followed by a candlelight reception of Miss Nancy’s pastries.

Sunday’s concert is free, and will include discussions of the paintings that have been used on Christmas stamps through the years.
