Just like ornaments on a Christmas tree, the tunes in this performance have been lovingly passed down through the generations as well. Some are hundreds of years old—some are new. Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin. She and the band will be joined on-stage by the RVCC Chorale singing traditional English and Irish carols.
