Growing up in the O’Connor musical household, Christmas time was a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols and traditional American music—and that is the spirit of Mark O’Connor’s critically acclaimed album An Appalachian Christmas. In this eagerly anticipated live show, the Grammy winning fiddler shares songs from, and inspired by, the hills and hollows of Appalachia. Share a celebration hailed as “a model of intelligence, heart and soul” (Los Angeles Times).

Join a pre-concert lecture with Mark O’Connor at 6:30PM on the Promenade level. Free with concert ticket.

Hear more from Mark at 2PM as he speaks about String Method for Teachers.
