Choral Arts Holiday Concert Stuns, Enchants

The Choral Arts Society of Washington’s 34th Annual Holiday Concert & Gala at the Kennedy Center Dec. 15 was, to quote artistic director Scott Tucker, “a rich and varied treat.” This year’s embassy sponsor was Argentina and Ambassador Cecilia Nahón’s country’s music was presented by the Pan American Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sergio Alessando Bušje. A special highlight was the appearance of Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, whose guitar renditions of traditional carols were stunning. He capped the concert with a rousing encore of “Jingle Bell Rock,” before the elegant crowd headed to the Roof Terrace for a silent auction, dinner and dancing.
