Holiday music Dec. 7 & Dickens Dec. 10 at the Huntington

Holiday Music in the Gallery
DEC 7, WED, 1:30–2 PM and 2:30–3 PM
Dressed in elaborate period costumes, the a cappella group Vox Feminae will perform medieval and Renaissance works in an informal concert in the grand hallway of the Huntington Art Gallery. The program will include Gregorian chant, rarely heard medieval carols, Renaissance motets, and traditional carols from these periods. Included with general admission.

A Christmas Carol with Charles Dickens
DEC 10, SAT, 7–9 PM
Enjoy a holiday classic as read by the author, as the Independent Shakespeare Co. recreates (with a little artistic license) a public reading of A Christmas Carol given by Charles Dickens himself. Based on the author’s own adaption of his famous story of Christmas redemption, the performance is full of the theatricality and wry humor Dickens was famous for. David Melville portrays Dickens; Mary Guilliams provides musical—and dramatic—accompaniment. Appropriate for ages 10 to adult.
