Celebrate the upcoming holiday season with a French Christmas Concert at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center on Sunday, December 11, from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm.
Join local folk trio, Trois Canards, made up of Marti Pizzni, Suzanne Keldsen, and Dot Pakin, as they sing traditional French Christmas songs. The songs, sung in both French and English, are accompanied by traditional instruments like the fiddle, hurdy gurdy, dulcimer, accordion, guitar, and recorder. These songs may well have been enjoyed during the holidays by Joseph Bailly, considered the first permanent European settler in the area, whose home is now preserved within the national lakeshore. So gather up in the visitor center’s theater for this 90-minute concert and enjoy some good holiday music and learn a little about our local history.
The Indiana Dunes Visitor Center is located at 1215 North State Road 49, about one mile north of Interstate 94. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or check the park’s website at www.nps.gov/indu.
