Like the holiday season itself, it gave listeners a balm for a world gone wrong. – Boston Globe

Online and phone sales for this weekend’s concerts are now closed.  Tier 3 tickets ($29 for adults/seniors, $10 for students with I.D.) will be available at the door beginning at 4:00 Saturday and 2:00 Sunday.

America’s preeminent early music ensemble, The Boston Camerata, will be joined by SHARQ Arabic Music Ensemble for a program of music from the various coastal areas around the Mediterranean, spanning more than 700 years, all inspired by both traditional and unusual aspects of the Christmas story. The dichotomy between the Arab and Western worlds dissolves in A Mediterranean Christmas.

The approximate concert length is 2 hours, including intermission.  Parking is available on the street, or in the lot accessed at 29th and Orchard.  The venue is also on the Purple Line, 27, and 56 bus routes.

These concerts are sponsored by Gregory & Susan Milleville, and co-sponsored by Richard Outland & Frances Bedford and by William & Nancy Carpenter.
