My top pick this weekend is the Third Annual Berlin Brothers Christmas Orchestra featuring The Irvettes this Friday, December 23rd at the Cloth Mill in Hillsborough. This an all ages event that is FREE to the public. Event is sponsored by Mystery Brewing and benefits Arts For Life, an organization that brings art and musical programming to children in hospitals across North Carolina. Donations are encouraged!

The all-star Berlin Brothers Christmas Orchestra includes many of North Carolina’s favorite musicians and singers, including members of The Squirrel Nut Zippers, Curtis Eller’s American Circus, Tres Chicas, Boom Unit Brass Band, and The Wiley Fosters.
Popular favorites will be performed live, including “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Angels We Have Heard On High,” alongside lesser-known hits like Shirley Temple’s “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” and Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas In Hollis.”
