Nov’s Masterworks 2 brings violinist Alexi Kenney to Carmel; that’s followed by CSO’s annual Holiday Pops, returning to the Palladium in early Dec with a brand new fun & festive variety format with The Voice champion Josh Kaufman, vocalist Leah Crane and others to be announced soon. 

Two eagerly anticipated performances that had to be postponed this season have been rebooked for 2022-23: Serpentine Fire – the Music of Earth Wind & Fire in Jan, and in Feb, the Harlem Quartet (with Carmel native Felix Umansky).
