Fran Creasy, on her flute, played the French carols “Il es Né” and “Noël Nouvelet” and Harald Rohlig’s “A Little Shepherd Music.” Shackelford accompanied all three performers on the piano.
“Gesu Bambino,” by Pietro Yon, was sung by soprano Elaine Jenkins. Her accompanist on the piano was Mimi Child Traxler.
The duo of Ann Morgan and Karen Killough changed the mood with fourhanded piano duets “Ding Dong! Merrily on High” and “Angels We Have Heard on High,” both French carols.
Lastly, on her bassoon decorated for the holidays, Karen Molnar played “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee” by Ludwig von Beethoven and “Christmas Mysteries” arr. by Louise Hillery. Meryt Wilson accompanied on the piano.
