Program Notes

Because there are so many carols associated with the celebration of Christmas. It is often difficult to select an appropriate combination for a concert setting. This holiday collage incorporates cherished Christmas tunes with lesser-known works. With fifteen melodies recurring throughout the piece, Instant Christmas Spirit challenges your audience to name all of the songs - as well as the order if they can keep track of them all!
