A joyous program spanning the centuries, A Holiday Toast offers peaceful moments of contemplation as well as celebratory numbers sure to get your toes tapping. Alongside seasonal favorites and lesser known gems, each of the players has selected music that brings them joy each winter.

We’ve had such a great time choosing music that captures what we love most about this time of year, from the natural reflex to turn inward for reflection and repose on these short days, to the need for celebration and warmth and hope. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and that this music brings you comfort and light. 

~ Sasha, Megumi, Alex, and Leo
