A History of Popular Christmas Carols and Songs

Addolorata Village provides you with enriching and entertaining educational opportunities right outside your door. Silent Night, The Christmas Song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – we’ve sung and enjoyed these and countless other Christmas carols and songs for as long as we can remember. Yet most of us know very little about the history and meaning of this music. We’ll identify the difference between a Christmas Carol and a Christmas Song and examine who wrote the lyrics and melodies, why they were written, and what they really mean. The artists whose recordings transformed Christmas carols and songs into Billboard hits will also be featured. Join us, along with Harper College, for our Fall 2019 courses and discover the possibilities waiting for you at Addolorata Villa.

All programs are free of charge. Seating is limited.
