Chill out with the classics, for free!

There are so many wonderful holiday-themed festivals going on this coming weekend. It's hard to pick just one to attend, and I know we're going to be spending a lot of time walking around outside. ... I have a feeling that by the time Sunday afternoon rolls around, my family is going to need some down time.

Here's one option, featuring fantastic music in a world-class setting on Sunday (Dec. 7) -- and it's FREE!

The Bard Conservatory Orchestra, conducted by Guillermo Figueroa, will perform the Vaughn Williams Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis, the Brahms Concerto for violin, cello and orchestra in A minor ("Double"), Op. 102, with violinist Laurie Smukler and cellist Joel Krosnick, and the Beethoven Symphony No. 4. The performance begins at 3 p.m. in the marvelous Fisher Performing Arts Center on the Bard College campus.

No tickets or reservations are required.
