Join the Bella Voce Camerata for a joyful journey around the globe this holiday season. Enjoy familiar and new carols including “Stille Nacht” from Germany, “What Child Is This?” from England, and “Go Tell It on the Mountain” from North America to new discoveries such as “Somerkersfees” from South Africa and “Huānlè Jiāyīn Gē” from China. This program will transport the listener to the far corners of the earth for the holiday. The Bella Voce Camerata was founded in 2014 so that its members could perform some of the great trove of works written for a small vocal chamber ensemble. Among these intimate works are rare gems and extraordinary pieces, which the group is passionate about sharing with its audiences.

Just as the artists of Paris have done for hundreds of years, local artists will paint “Plein Air” (outdoors in the open air) in Barrington from October 1–9. Come into town to watch over 15 artists from across Chicagoland as they paint local landmarks during the week. Then, meet the artists in-person as they showcase (and sell!) their newly created pieces at the reception on Saturday evening. Sponsored by the Barrington Cultural Commission.
