About This Concert

Now in its third year, this merry mix of storytelling, carols and comedy speaks to the meaning of family, Christmas and home, with a uniquely Minnesotan twist.

Celebrate the season with a hilariously heartwarming event featuring Minnesota’s favorite storyteller, Kevin Kling. Led by Sarah Hicks, the Minnesota Orchestra, Kling and special local guest performers illuminate the joy of the season through music, only-in-Minnesota traditions, the power of family and the story of a lost mitten.
