Guest artists the Aulos Ensemble will present "A Baroque Christmas," an evening of traditional carols, instrumental noels and cantatas, at Brigham Young University Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

The program will begin with Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major, followed by the time-honored carols "When Christ was Born on Earth," "Coventry Carol" and "Shepherds Shake Off Your Drowsy Sleep." A series of cantatas by Bach will then be featured, including "Mein Glaubiges Herze" and "Susser Trost, mein Jesus kommt."
