Dress Rehearsal, Thursday Dec 15 6pm
Friday, Dec 16, 7pm

All rehearsals and Friday performance will be held in the First Universalist Church and Society of Barnard, 6211 Rt 12. Saturday performance will be outdoors on the green in Woodstock.
Covid Safety: Singers have the option to wear masks while rehearsing or to test just beforehand.
Although it is early to be sure of Covid risks in December, our current expectation is to ask the audience to mask so the performers can sing safely without masks.
We are continuing our new extra event:
BarnArts Winter Carols Outdoor Sing – Dec 17th
on the Woodstock Green
The live event took place on Dec 18th, 2020, but the video can be enjoyed anytime!
Winter Carols is BarnArts original event and the highlight of our Winter programming. Don’t miss this festive opportunity to join with neighbors and friends and celebrate the season as a community. Winter Carols includes audience sing-alongs as well as instrumental and choral performances.
