10th Annual Winter Solstice Concert
Event Category: Events and Concerts
The 10th Annual Old Town Center for the Arts ‘Winter Solstice Concert’ will feature some of the world’s favorite Christmas melodies, uplifting songs of the spirit, original songs, and a special visual, musical tribute to honor our indigenous ancestors, in observation of the ancient winter solstice ritual. This year’s ‘Solstice Ensemble’ features flutist Claudia Tulip, violinist Allen Ames, violinist Carrie Caruso, cellist Melanie Yarger, harp guitarist William Eaton, vocalist Jennifer Jacobi and bass player/percussionist Logan Turner.
A special added holiday feature of the evening will be aerial performances by Taylor Marie on silks and Lyra hoop. Taylor’s dance company Hydrangea Sky Movement Arts recently premiered its aerial production of “Ephemera” at OTCA in November in two sold-out performances. Lighting director Elena Bullard commented, “Attendees don’t often get to witness the wonderful visuals and ‘movement art’ performed high above the audience on silks and Lyra (hoop), especially in our area.”
The Winter Solstice Concert promises to be an evening of diverse musical styles, holiday classics, ‘elevated’ movement art’ and a few surprises.
