“The Christmas Schooner” tells the story of one immigrant family. It celebrates their pioneering spirit, their ebullient joy in living every day to the fullest, their courage, their commitment to family, faith, and the belief that “our blessings aren’t ours to keep, they’re meant to be passed along.”

The score of “Schooner” has been praised by critics as “richly melodic,” “haunting,” “charming,” “folk-like” and “exquisite.”
