On Christmas Eve — which is Tuesday — the Round Hill Community Church, 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich, will host a family service at 4 p.m. and a candlelight service of lessons and varols at 9:30 p.m.
The 4 p.m. service will feature trumpeter David Glukh playing arrangements of traditional carols. The McZolis, Greenwich natives Jack and Charlie McKean and George and John Mazzoli, will return by popular demand to sing Hayes’ “Rise Up Shepherd.”
The festive service of Lessons and Carols will begin at 9:30 p.m., with a program of carols, arias, and instrumental pieces for voices, strings and choir. The featured soloist will be violinist Gulia Gurevich. A versatile performer, Gurevich has performed as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestra member throughout the United States and abroad. Most recently, Ms. Gurevich performed at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall and Benaroya Hall.
Next season she will appear in more than fifty concerts with the Prima Trio, a group that in 2007 won the Grand Prix and the Gold Medal at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.
