But wait, there’s more! We’ve also curated a second playlist of “classical” holiday favorites, available on the streaming media database Naxos Music. This playlist offers more “traditional” seasonal arrangements from vocal ensembles, bands, chamber music groups, orchestras, and more. Perfect for a relaxing night by the fireplace with your seasonal beverage of choice.

(please note: when accessing off campus, you must be logged in through MIT VPN)

We hope you enjoy the classics but also take the time to discover new genres, artists, and cultural traditions with which you may not regularly engage.
