Do you know Greensleeves, Joy to the World, or Hark the Herald Angels Sing?
If you grew up in Europe or North America, you probably do, and you probably know quite a few others, too. All those carols that we know and love have been around a long time - some for hundreds of years - and they have quite a history. While some carols have remained mostly unchanged, others have evolved over the years, changing tunes and lyrics.
We bet you've never experienced Carols the way that we perform them. Curated by traverso player and long-time BBE ensemble member Leighann Daihl Ragusa, we explore the history of carols - those you know, and those you don't - and invite you to sing (and laugh) with us through some of the most beloved Christmas carols of all time.
Camillo the Christmas Camel is the official mascot of the Carols program. If you come to a Carols performance, you can meet him - and get a selfie with him!
