5—7 Christmas at Lorenzo
Cazenovia

www.lorenzoNY.org

The spicy aroma of wassail, the shimmer of handbells -- it’s “Christmas at Lorenzo,” and the magic of the holiday season takes flight this year in each room of the mansion. From peacocks in the formal dining room, to cardinals in the gentleman's library, the artistry of volunteer decorators will bring the theme “Birds of a Feather” to life in every corner, cranny and chamber. Come, and let your spirits soar.“There are so many little details in every room that the designers bring to the theme,” said Jenny Coughlin, program co-chair. “You could go through multiple times and take different favorite bits away from the tour. It shows differently on the candlelit night than it does with the sun streaming through the windows.”

Lorenzo will show off its holiday plumage throughout December. The Friends of Lorenzo, whose support helps to make the Christmas program possible, kick off the festivities with their annual “Preview Party” for members and guests from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 2. The mansion will be aglow on “Candlelight Night,” Friday, Dec. 5 from 7-9 p.m., and the celebration continues throughout the weekend, with tours of the mansion, holiday refreshments and live music from 1-4 p.m. on Dec. 6 and 7. Weekday tours of the Mansion will be available throughout December, by advance reservation only, for groups of 12 or more.

This free Earlville Awesome House event for kids and families brings "A Heck of a Way to Stay Warm - Stories and Songs to Kindle Winter's Hidden Light" on Saturday, December 13th at 3:30 pm in the EOH Arts Cafe. One reviewer noted, "I expected to hear holiday stories. In fact, there is one touching story which is described as a Christmas story for people of all faiths. The rest of the songs and stories, however, simply and zestfully celebrate winter I don't use the term magic lightly. However it seemed the best word to describe how Porcino was able - with only his voice and his selection of musical instruments - to bring his material so fully to life." John spins some 200 performances each year for folks of all ages. His performances are a mix of stories and songs that are sparked to life with warmth, humor, a playful touch of audience participation, and a twist of music from around the world. For tickets or more information, visit the EOH website at www.earlvilleoperahouse.com or call the EOH at (315) 691-3550.

19 Sweetback Sisters Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular

Starts at 8pm at the Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Avenue, Oneida, NY 13421. Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular has a predominantly swing bottom line with a barn-raisin' country savor that's absolutely irresistible. Zara Bode and Emily Miller really are sweet, their voices like meadowlarks and they boast a crack outfit behind 'em, anchored by a guy who's astonishing on guitar.The combination of all that results in a zesty, spirited, and sometimes backwoods reverential disc that's also just plain fun. Look at Country Christmas as though it were the LP Dan Hicks, the Andrews Sisters, and Dolly Parton never teamed up to put out F.A.M.E.
