The yuletide season begins on the final day of November with “Gloriously Gershwin — the Songs of George and Ira.” Gallimaufry’s soloists will offer the Gershwin brothers’ most memorable numbers, including “Embraceable You,” “’S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “Summertime” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” This event will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 428 Park Ave. Next up will be the Lagunatunes Holiday Suite, the annual holiday concert under the direction of Christin Cornell and Roxanna Ward.
