Experience the journey of the Magi around you in the Virginia Living Museum’s state-of-the-art digital planetarium theater! Since 1965, the museum has journeyed in the footsteps of the magi. Over the years, the scientific thinking has changed, archeology has revealed new clues, and our understanding of who the magi might actually have been has grown. The show was completely revised in 2008 to offer a truly immersive look at the journey of the magi while examining the latest clues and seeking once more to understand the appearance of the Star of Bethlehem. Days and times vary. $4 in addition to museum admission. Detailed schedule at thevlm.org. The museum is closed Thanksgiving, Dec. 24 and 25.

ExpandMark O'Connor's An Appalachian Christmas
December 3, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
Mark O’Connor’s “An Appalachian Christmas” album (2011) made the top 15 on Billboard’s Classical Album, Crossover and Bluegrass Album charts. It was hailed by critics from The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times as the top album of the holiday season. O’Connor is a Grammy-winning composer and violinist who tackles Christmas classics creating a wondrous mixture of Christmas carols, fiddling, bluegrass and other American music. Concert goers are treated to fresh takes on traditional songs in what feels like an “off-the-cuff performance for family and friends.” His renditions are playful and joyous, but can be strikingly earnest too.
