A Carolina Christmas 

When: Fri., Nov. 25, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 26, 3 & 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $18-$63

This weekend, three performances of A Carolina Christmas by the state symphony will include many of the season's expected carols and classics, made more tempting by the invitation to sing along. But the chief enticement here is the stage premiere of The Gathering, a smart six-song cycle composed by Laurelyn Dossett and performed by a stellar ensemble that includes Carolina Chocolate Drop Rhiannon Giddens Laffan and The Nashville Bluegrass Band's Mike Compton. Crisp and carved from the state's traditional folk strains, The Gathering is an evocative tale that speaks more of the coming season of cold than Santa Claus. The Friday launch at 8 p.m. is followed by Saturday shows at 3 and 8 p.m. —Grayson Currin
