A Short History of MantraVani’s Christmas in the Round/Winter Solstice Celebration


Christmas in the Round & Winter Solstice Celebration began 25 years ago with the MantraVani Orchestra. The first concert was at Kits Neighbourhood House, and this year the MantraVani Orchestra is happy to return to for this 25th Anniversary Celebration!
