Triad Arts Holiday Celebration Part Two

6:41pm Dec 29, 2013

  Every year around this time there’s an enormous variety of artful holiday traditions going on here in the Triad. Dance, music, theatre, art, you’ll find it all, and frankly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to attend every event. But today on Triad Arts Holiday Celebration, gonna have our fruit cake and eat it too. First off, we’ll hear lots of outstanding music—holiday favorites, plus some completely original sounds of the season. We’ve also got poems, short stories and essays that explore this magical time of year. The best part is, for the next hour everything you'll hear will be performed by a group of incredibly talented musicians, poets and writers who each call the Piedmont home. It’s a Triad Arts Holiday Celebration Part II.
