Holiday Concerts Coming Up

It seems like this time of year the only acceptably cool response to the omnipresence of Christmas music is to act like it’s the worst part of the season, like summer’s humidity or spring’s tourists. GM rejects that. From the moment the Thanksgiving turkey leftovers are first packed away till New Years, GM surrounds himself in a bubble of holiday tunes.

So if you too are looking for a few more holiday tunes to cram in, check out these concerts around Georgetown coming up:

The Barnes and Hampton Celtic Consort – Dumbarton Concerts

This Saturday at 4 pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 4 pm, the Dumbarton Ave. Methodist Church holds its annual candlelight Christmas concert. This year the Barns and Hampton Celtic Consort will perform.

Georgetown University Jazz Ensemble

Today at 1:15 at McNeir Hall on the GU campus, the Georgetown University Jazz Ensemble will present its annual Christmas concert. Admission is free!

Eric Felton Jazz Orchestra – Blues Alley

Next Tuesday, at 8 pm and 10 pm, the Eric Felton Jazz Orchestra will perform its Duke Ellington Nutcracker Suite at Blues Alley.

That should holdover even the most dedicated fan of holiday music. Now please excuse GM while he puts on some Christmas Cookin’.

  1. In addition, there is a free performance of the Nativity portion of Handel’s “Messiah” at St. Stephen Martyr Church in Foggy Bottom – just over the bridge from the Four Seasons – this Sunday at 2:30 pm, and on Sunday December 16th at 5:00 pm is the annual “Service of Lessons and Carols” at Christ Church in Georgetown. From previous experience, the music at both events will be first-rate.
