The concert at Pala Mesa will feature a Lucia Procession with candles, and lots of beautiful Jul music, mostly from Norway and Sweden. Many of the songs are a cappella, but a variety of musical instruments accompany several of their pieces. Mette Gaal will read the Christmas Story in Norwegian.

The concert will be in the Fireside Room. There is no charge. and for those wishing to eat at Aquaterra, the resort is offering a 25 percent discount to those coming to the concert. Concert goers should be sure to alert the wait staff that they are attending the concert.
