Through late harvest, saints' feast days, solstice, Christmas, New Year's, Epiphany, and carnival, Eastern European cultures observe many holidays and rituals to help them get through the dark cold days of winter. Some are steeped in Orthodox Christianity, but many pagan themes and traditions remain.

Join Dunava for a musical journey through this season of both reverence and revelry, with songs from throughout Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, as we shake off the darkness and celebrate the sun's return.

Special guests are Ukrainian-American singer Nadia Tarnawsky and lutenist John Lenti.

Tickets: $20
