Carpe Diem Arts and SMCC Present “A Winter’s Eve of Revelry”


Carpe Diem Arts and St. Michaels Community Center join together again in presenting the second annual “Winter’s Eve of Revelry” at St. Michaels Auditorium on Sunday, December 17 at 3 pm.

Enjoy Scandinavian, Ukrainian and Bulgarian song and dance in celebration of the holidays. Talented musicians include Andrea Hoag on fiddle with Melissa Running on nyckelharpa (a traditional Swedish keyed fiddle); Jonathan Een Newton on the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle, with singers Molly Hickman and Corinne Ducey; Lyuti Chushki Bulgarian Ensemble; the Slaveya vocal ensemble, along with members of the St. Michaels Middle High School Chamber Choir under the direction of Amy Effler.

Gerdan: Soul of Ukraine features the world-renowned duo of Andrei Pidkivka (flute) and Solomia Gorokhivska (violin and vocals).

As an additional attraction, the St. Michaels Middle High School chapter of the National Art Honor Society will be selling greeting cards along with small prints of student artwork in an effort to raise funds for our Artist-in-Residence Program. Student artists will be present to share their artwork and enthusiasm about the SMMHS program and its school-wide impact.

The St. Michaels Auditorium is located at 200 Seymour Ave. at St. Michaels Middle and High School.

Tickets are $10-25 (general admission, sliding scale: pay-what-you-can) and are available for purchase at the door. The event is FREE for children and students ages 18 and under.
