What: On its busy B.C. Christmas tour, this highly popular annual concert series is a unique must-see: performers in colourful period costume playing medieval-era instruments and evoking the timeless charms of the Yuletide period. Alongside flutes, violins and other medieval instruments, the astonishingly beautiful classical and Celtic harps are the stars of the show, adding a magical, velvety touch to traditional songs and yesteryear carols. With their candlelit staging and sigh-triggering renditions, these shows are the musical equivalent of being wrapped in a warm blanket with a bottomless mug of hot chocolate.
