Program Notes

What better way to start your Christmas concert than by featuring three favorite carols, O Christmas Tree, Jolly Old St. Nicholas and Deck The Halls? Following a glorious fanfare, the modern harmonization of O Christmas Tree will leave your audience breathless, but from that point on watch out for fast-tapping feet as the piece works its way to a rousing and highly satisfying finish.

Let the Christmas Season Begin! is dedicated to the South-Western City Schools (Ohio) Middle School Band Directors, Shane Harris, Pat Lewis, Dale Nawrocki, John Selhorst and Nancy Youse.
