Heliand Consort

When: Fri., Dec. 19, 7:30 p.m. 2014

If ever there’s a musical group poised to enliven short days and long nights, it’s Heliand Consort. The classical ensemble named after the Old Saxon word for healing power and helianthus, the scientific term for sunflower, presents “Music for a Winter Solstice.” Featuring French horn player Alan Parsley, a program for woodwind quintet pairs Renaissance-themed quintets with Scandinavian solstice songs and modern works by Paquito D’Rivera and Valerie Coleman. Closing out the evening, selections from Vermont composer Don Jamison portray the bright stars of winter skies — a fitting send-off to audience members before they head out into the night.

Price: Free.
