The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is offering a most unusually authentic Christmas musical experience with its
“Surf, Sand and Symphony.” The Newport Symphony Orchestra welcomes guest artist master harp guitarist John Doan on Saturday December 17 for “A Victorian Christmas Concert.”
Doan will perform a live version of his Emmy-nominated Public Broadcasting television special, which re-enacts what it might have been like to celebrate Christmas a century ago. “The show explores how Victorians invented many Christmas traditions we remember and quite a few we have forgotten,” said the Willamette music professor. The 20-string harp guitar, classical banjo and ukelin are just a few of the original instruments that will be featured.
