This will wrap up the Christmas concerts for the year (I've gone to seven!). I'll be going to a Christmas Eve service, but that won't be all music.
I always expect great things at Starlight, and this year did not disappoint. The decor is different every time.
The choir opened with a song called "It's Christmas." There were quite a few pieces of music this year that I was not familiar with, but for the most part you could understand the words, so that was good. The set for the program was a storefront, and the choir was dressed as shoppers.
One of the store "windows" had a Christmas dress on display- with a skirt of evergreens, of course.
And this skit this year was various bell-ringers explaining why they volunteer. Not all the motives were so great, which was the "lesson."
The window on the other side was a Santa with stuffed animals. Here the shopper had just finished singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
One really cute song with a definitely modern theme was "Text Merry Christmas."
The closing song was "O Holy Night." For those of you that recall my grumpy quest to find a recording of that song I liked a few weeks ago, this one made the grade. No cowboy twang, all the notes were on key, all three verses sung, you could understand all the words.
And, afterwards, a nice visit with my friends Paula and Gaylynne. Since I don't manage to see them very often, it's nice to go to Starlight with them.
In other news: I worked on book formatting.
