The Folger Consort is fabulous! This was one of the best of theirs that I have seen. Every minute was wonderful! All performers were exquisite. I couldn't have been happier with it.

This is possibly the best Christmas music event of the season in Washington. The theater is intimate, and the music from the Consort, ethereally beautiful. I wouldn't miss it. Thank you Goldstar!
