Music is rich in this season, and from the ringing out at Meymandi Hall to the rhythm and elegance of six a capella singers to a morning serenade for a vision of hope, we still have neighbors who play it from the heart.

Hark! 

Celebrating the season in three musical traditions

You want to believe that for every bit of tinny Muzak at the mall, every carol-singing robotic bass or frog, every dancing Santa destined to have its batteries removed before sundown on the 25th, there's someone with a guitar or a trumpet or drum or a group of willing voices making a joyful noise. Music is rich in this season, and from the ringing out at Meymandi Hall to the rhythm and elegance of six a capella singers to a morning serenade for a vision of hope, we still have neighbors who play it from the heart.

In the spirit: The Durham Carolers

Three hundred bells--one instrument: The Raleigh Ringers

Love songs for a dark lady: "Que viva la Virgen!"
