What are you favorite musical things about the Holiday Season? Happy Holidays to All!
What are you favorite things about the Holiday Season?
As a singer, I love performing or listening to the first concert of the holiday season. The warmth and joy that is shared between the performers and the audience through a musical event is beautiful. Singing about the joy in a child's eye when they see the tree Christmas morning, the description of seeing baby Jesus in the manger or playing a dreidl game in Hannukah is a glorious experience. It makes us remember our past holiday experiences and also to look forward to what wonderful things we have yet to enjoy in the next weeks.
My second favorite musical time is listening to children sing songs of the season. The joy in their faces and hearts about the magic of the season is heard in their singing.
Another favorite is singing Christmas carols around the tree. What a great time for family and friends to share the season in the glow of the tree and share the love of the season which warms their hearts.
Music is the language of joy and communicates in a way that words cannot quite express. Let your love of music and love of your holiday shine through your performing and singing this holiday.
Ways to Share Your Talents and Your Love of the Season-
- Have an impromtu sing-a-long at your home
- Sing Christmas carols door to door in your neighborhood with friends
- Go support your local musicians in the many Holiday Concerts this season
- Volunteer to lead children or the elderly in a sing-a-long
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanza and Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy 2013.
