classical holiday music

Where did the year go? While December can really pile on the stress with winter weather, holiday preparations, work deadlines and family visits, it’s also the time for some of the most sublime, glorious music in the cycle of the year.

As 2017 draws to a close, the music of Chanukah and Christmas reminds so many of us of our treasured holiday traditions. 

We have a full slate of special programs scheduled to air on Classical 101 this month, in addition to holiday editions of our regular shows.

Christmas mornings are special, and that's why I am so pleased to offer you a few Musical Christmas Gifts under your tree at 8 a.m. Monday, Dec. 25 on Classical 101.

The days are getting shorter, the cold is setting in and the holiday hubbub is descending on us like the Grinch down hillside in his overburdened sled.

But don’t let the darkness get you down. Join me for the Holiday Happy Hour, Christmas Eve at noon and Christmas Day at 10 a.m. on Classical 101.

Bundle up, put on your walking shoes and get yourselves ready for a tour of four beautiful downtown Columbus churches and an afternoon of music in sacred spaces. 

The Great Hallelujah Holiday Tour is a great way for you to get in the holiday spirit and support Classical 101 at the same time.

Join Columbus Landmarks and your favorite Classical 101 hosts Saturday, Dec. 2 to hear seasonal music and learn about the architecture and history of some of the landmark churches along Broad Street.
