Winter is a season whose associations are as varied as its experiences. For many the world over it is bitterly cold and dark; some see no daylight for weeks. For others, winter is a mild season. This rich variety is at the heart of this program which celebrates winter from a variety of angles. Christmas is a central theme. Maxine Thévenot directs Polyphony: Voices of New Mexico, the all-female choir.
