One of the funnest (I know it should be "most fun" but that sound stuffy to me) things I've ever done was performing with the Nashville Symphony. They do these children's concerts through the year, and for several years, I was the narrator, led the sing-a-long and so forth. So much fun! The first time I did it, is one of my favorite holiday memories. I welcomed everyone and introduced the first number.
I remember sitting on the stage, looking out at the crowd while this marvelous orchestra played their first piece. I got chills and a little teary--it was just so exciting.
Since then, I've cherished that memory and loved the song. It's an arrangement of many well-known Christmas songs. It's played here by the Boston Pops and is simply magnificent. The visuals are a little cheesy, but the music is superb. Listen especially towards the end when the trombones come in on "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" under "Jingle Bells." If it doesn't get you excited about Christmas, then something is wrong with you, I fear. The visuals are a little cheesy, but just listen to the music and don't look at them.
