About the album
Carols are often associated exclusively with the Christmas season - but that’s not true! For centuries, people sang carols during all four seasons, at weddings and birthdays, as well as other holidays and occasions outside the Christmas season. This concert marks the release of the BBE's Advent-style Carols album which features a carol for each of the 31 days of December, including songs celebrating other December holidays that are not associated with Advent, such as Hannakuh, Festivus, National Violin Day, and others. We won't play all 31, but you will hear a mix of villancicos, spirituals, Appalachian, Cajun and Caribbean folk tunes, and Bach. There will be some you know, and many you don't! 
About the BBE
The Bach + Beethoven Experience (BBE), a Chicago-based period instrument ensemble, makes classical music into community by building personal connections between our audience and our artists through stories, music, and interactive experiences. For this release concert, the instrumentation will include BBE co-directors violinist Brandi Berry Benson and flautist Leighann Daihl Ragusa, vocalists Thomas Alaan, Matthew Dean, and Alexandra Olsavsky, violin/violist Kiyoe Matsuura, cellist Stephanie Hunt, theorbo, baroque guitar, percussion, and more.
