American Public Media has released their treasure trove of Holiday programming beginning at Thanksgiving (US). Many public radio stations across the country will air all or some of these programs during the season.

Dates given are when the shows will become available for stations to access. Consult your local station schedule for broadcast dates (and post them here!).

November 5 - Giving Thanks with John Birge

November 5 - Harvest Home: Thanksgiving with the Dale Warland Singers

November 26 (Thanksgiving Day) - The Splendid Table's Turkey Confidential

December 3 - Cantus: All is Calm
(musical drama about the surprising 1914 World War I Christmas truce, Cantus)

December 3 - Echoes of Christmas (featuring the Dale Warland Singers)

December 3 - Welcome Christmas!
(featuring the Minneapolis-based ensemble, VocalEssence)

December 24 - A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

Other shows with “To Be Determined” dates include:

A Chanticleer Christmas

St. Olaf Christmas Festival

Keep a check at the link for updates and more programming. Be sure to notice that each show listed has a seperate link for more information. Many of these shows will be recorded with a live audience so you may be able to secure tickets for a particular performance!

As the season gets closer, I will feature some of these shows in separate posts. Feel free to beat me to it!
