The program includes selections from Vivaldi’s “Winter,” Waldteufel’s “Skaters Waltz”, a Troika (or sleigh ride) by Prokofiev, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” and others. Winter songs include Margaret MacArthur’s “Vermont Sugar-Maker’s Song” and Don Jamison’s “Stars.” The featured artwork for the concerts is “Stars” by Lyndonville artist, Mary Simpson.
