Today: The Pipes of Christmas

With so many, many options for Christmas shows in New York, The Pipes of Christmas is one of the best and the one I choose.   I attended last year for the first time, after seeing street lamp banners when I was walking to my office.  I am very much looking forward to today's performance.  It's a festive array of traditional Celtic music, sacred music and Christmas carols featuring Scottish, with narration of the Christmas story.   I have wee drops of Scottish and Irish blood in me and it's great fun to celebrate the season in this way.

The Pipes of Christmas is produced by  Clan Currie Society to both celebrate the season and raise money for its music scholarship.  The performances are today and tomorrow, December 16th and 17th, att Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church (Madison at 73rd Street).  Last year's performance was sold out, but there are still a few tickets available this year:  purchase at the door or call SmartTix at 212-868-4444 or buy online at
