(Bronx, NY) - Bronx Arts Ensemble opens the holiday season with St. Nicholas Celebration concerts on Saturday, December 3 at 1 pm and 3 pm at Philipse Manor Hall at 29 Warburton Avenue at Dock Street, in Yonkers and Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11 at 1 noon and 3 pm at the Bartow-Pell Mansion on Shore Road, Pelham Bay Park, near the Split Rock Golf Course.
The St. Nicholas Celebration by the BAE Singers and Double Reed Band (oboe, oboe d'amore, English horn and bassoon) describes in song and storytelling the arrival of the Dutch sinterklass, who brings candies and fruits to good children of colonial New Amsterdam, and lumps of coal to those who have misbehaved. Following the program, which includes many old Dutch carols, the audience will join with the group in singing holiday songs. Fun for the whole family!
Free tickets are available by calling the BAE at 718.601.7399. Orders are limited to 5 tickets per person, as seating is limited.
