Piffaro, the Renaissance Band will welcome soprano Clara Rottsolk for its annual holiday concerts in charming Chestnut Hill, PA. This year’s program aims to evoke a distinct sense of the place, taking listeners to the regions of Bavaria and Swabia to hear music that would have been played in churches and homes in cities like Nuremberg, Heidelberg, and Augsburg.

- Lieder for a cold winter’s day, including Caspar Othmayr’s Es ist ein Schnee gefallen
