34th Annual
Christmas in the Park
is December 6

Celebrate the holiday season with art, music, and friends at the Morse Museum’s 34th annual Christmas in the Park event on Thursday, December 6, in Central Park in downtown Winter Park. Nine illuminated Tiffany windows from the Museum’s collection will brighten the night as the 150-voice Bach Festival Choir performs a free outdoor concert of seasonal favorites. The almost two-hour program begins at 6:15 p.m. when the signal will be given to turn on the window lights. This year, the program will be recorded live and broadcast on 90.7 WMFE-FM December 9, 24, and 30.

Enjoy beautiful Tiffany windows under the stars at Christmas in the Park on December 6.

During the holidays, friends and family make plans for special and joyous gatherings. With this in mind, the Morse Museum invites the community into its galleries for a festive schedule of holiday events on Friday nights when admission is free from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Each Friday night through December 28, enjoy live music beginning at 5 p.m. in styles to suit almost any taste, from classical guitar and harp to popular standards and holiday classics. In addition to live music, curator tours of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Laurelton Hall in the Museum’s new Tiffany wing begin at 7 p.m.
