(Dec. 16-23) Seasonal sounds
There’s oh so much seasonal celebration in and around the District this weekend.
 
For some traditional tunes and tinsel Arlington’s Signature Theatre has Holiday Follies through the 23rd. Yosi and the Superdads put on a Rockin’ Hanukkah Concert for the whole family at the McClean Community Center Sunday afternoon. There’s more music from the Yiddish tradition at Metropolitan Klezmer Saturday night at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown. And the young choristers in the Children’s Chorus of Washington take on traditional Nordic sounds of the season Saturday and Sunday at National City Christian Church in Northwest.

(Dec. 16-Jan. 1) THE Christmas Carols
There are dozens of takes on Dickens going down: A Broadway Christmas Carol mixes Ebenezer’s rough night up with parodies of Broadway songs at MetroStage in Alexandria. An Irish Carol sets the action in a Dublin pub at Church Street Theater in Northwest. And Olney Theatre does it all with one man, a couple of props and - of course - three ghosts.

Music: “The Winter Solstice” by Sufjan Stevens
