Ok, so this one’s a little further than 30 minutes from Williamsburg, but I’ll be playing, and this is my blog, so I get to post about it 🙂 For recordings of our orchestra check our Facebook page. We’ll be playing a bunch of Christmas music, the Nutcracker Suite, and “Gloria” by John Rutter.


Grand Illumination– Sunday (Dec 7) 4:45-7:30 pm

Grand Illumination

I can’t not mention this–the annual crowding of Duke of Gloucester Street complete with lots of musical acts in the afternoon and topped off by colonial-style fireworks.


I hope you all have a great week! I didn’t mention it above but there’s also the Christmas parade this weekend (Saturday at 8:30am), like a million concerts and don’t forget the indie movies at the Kimball. Lots of free and low cost things to do in Williamsburg this week and weekend, so y’all have a great time!
