2nd Annual Lewis Music Library Holiday Playlists

Music to celebrate all things wintry and festive

Rolled up sheet music in the falling snowTis the season!

In celebration of all things wintery and festive, the Lewis Music Library has curated our 2nd Annual MIT Libraries Holiday Playlist! From Destiny’s Child to Meshugga Beach Party, from Celia Cruz to “Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey,” there is something for everyone to enjoy.

We’ve also curated a second selection of holiday favorites from our streaming media database Naxos Music. This playlist offers more “classical” arrangements from vocal ensembles, bands, chamber music groups, orchestras, and more. Perfect for a relaxing night by the fireplace with your favorite holiday beverage.

We hope you enjoy the classics, as well as discover new genres, artists, and cultural traditions with which you may not regularly engage. We also hope you use this playlist to relax, bring joy to those you love, and celebrate your successes from the previous year.

Please be sure to stop by Lewis Music Library before winter break and see our holiday displays. Musical resources include recordings by Yo-Yo Ma, music from “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” and of course, Mariah Carey’s memoir.
