Kevin Kling and Victor Zupanc: In Praise of Winter
Jan 14 | 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Songs and Stories
In the stillness of a winter night, surrounded by the softness of the drifting snow, it seems stories and songs can be more easily invited in. What better time to reflect, remember and remind ourselves of the beauty, humor and great fortune it is to live in this boreal home. Join Victor and Kevin as they celebrate this uniquely blessed time of year in stories, song, a laugh, a tear, a nosh and a nog.
