Join the artists who have made the Cal Performances at Home season possible for a celebratory evening of original performances recorded especially for this occasion. Soloists, recitalists, jazz artists, and chamber ensembles featured in the fall online streaming series have contributed special musical selections to help Cal Performances audiences usher in the year 2021 in style. All performers have carefully chosen their contributions, with the aim of sharing works that convey the joy, hope, warmth, and spirit of the holidays. Their transcendent performances promise to remind viewers of the power of the arts to uplift and connect us all even during the most trying of times.

This program will not be available for later viewing.
