Program Notes

Snowflakes may not fall on all parts of the earth, but in many cultures, snow is synonymous with the holiday season. James Ployhar's ability to brighten up both the Christmas spirit and your performance is in evidence as he features the sounds of a Dixieland band in this tribute to the softly falling flakes.

Songwriter Jule Styne combined with lyricist Sammy Cahn to produce one popular hit after another beginning in 1942. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! was among their hits while working at Metro Goldyn Meyer (MGM). The song was ranked ninth in the American Society of Composers, Autgirs and Publishers (ASCAP) top 25 holiday songs of the century. Recorded by Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald and Maureen McGovern among others, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! has become a holiday favorite worldwide.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!, also known as Let It Snow, is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California, during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.

Despite the lyrics making no mention of any holiday, the song has come to be regarded as a Christmas song in North America due to its winter theme, being played on radio stations during the Christmas and holiday season, and having often been covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums. In the Southern Hemisphere, however, it can be played during the winter months of June, July, and August; and in New Zealand, some play it at Matariki.
