Join us for Christmas Cabaret, presented by Van Dellen Steel, Inc., on Thursday, December 6, 2018. Guests will enjoy the Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibition during cocktail hour. They will then be treated to a fabulous gourmet dinner with live holiday entertainment. This year we are overjoyed to feature members of the Grand Rapids Symphony.

John Varineau, clarinetist and long-time associate conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony, will be joined by nine select string players to present a spirited program called “Joy to Your Ears!”. This performance will include holiday classics such as Joy to the World, The First Noel, Deck the Halls, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland and more. Special features include a tender collection of English Christmas folk songs and a humorous take on a holiday tradition with a klezmer rendition of The Nutcracker.

After the performance, guests are invited to stay and enjoy the Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibition while enjoying a coffee bar featuring espresso drinks and specialty hot chocolate.
