Event Details

The Messiah was born in humble conditions familiar to the peasants of the Southern Italian countryside.  These peasants continue even now to mark the season with special music for the zampogne (traditional Italian bagpipes) which is believed to be the very music that was heard on the night Christ was born.  Vesuvius’s Christmas program offers Toronto audiences a way to experience this special cultural heritage here in Canada.
