Winter Solstice Performance at Weis Center

Nov 14, 2016 10:46AM ● By Erica Shames
The Weis Center will end its fall performing arts season with a Celtic Holiday performance, Windham Hill’s Winter Solstice, on Friday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center.

The performance is sponsored, in part, by Coldwell Banker Penn One Real Estate.

Attendees are asked to bring a canned food item, which will be donated to Union County Children and Youth Services and distributed to local families in need during the holiday season.

Master musicians who made their names on the Windham Hill label--pianist Liz Story, singer and multi-instrumentalist Barbara Higbie and guitarist Sean Harkness--have created a special show in celebration of Winter Solstice.

 

 

This ensemble in various forms has toured nationally for the past 10 years in support of the recording series that sold over 8 million copies.

Warmth, humor and stunningly pristine performances abound.  The significance of Winter Solstice is recognized in indigenous traditions around the world. This concert brings the best of acoustic music to joyfully mark a special moment in time.
