Following the tradition of Christmas lasting 12 days, this concert concluded the Christmas holiday season and celebrated the New Year.


Pianist Libor Dudas, soprano Barbara Kilduff, and tenor Gerald Seminatore performed seasonal songs, arias, and duets by J.S. Bach, Benjamin Britten, Georg Frederic Handel, Ralph Vaughn Williams, and other composers in the intimate environment of the historic chapel at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
