    Panoramic Voices: Rockin' Holiday Extravaganza

    Any performance by Brent Baldwin's expansive crowd of vocalists could be considered an extravaganza, really, even if they were just, like, whispering melodically. But this annual concert drives the point – and the holiday favorites – home by also featuring Carrie Fussell of Calliope Musicals, Taylor Muse of Quiet Company, Nakia, and those Invincible Czars. How could it get any better? Listen: It's in the Blanton … and it's free, FFS, free! Because the city loves you.
