From the Artist
Dear Friends: There is no time of the year like the holidays, and no other celebration is so centered around and dependent on the ongoing gift of music. Just imagine the holiday season without holiday music! Impossible
and very sad to contemplate. My own Christmas memories, forged in childhood, all have a soundtrack-singing hymns at midnight service on Christmas eve, listening to Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole while decorating the tree, singing along with Mitch and, more recently, sharing the great glories of this musical tradition with you. Ive left a couple of my favorite holiday treats tunder the tree for you, all wrapped up, and with your name on the tag. Happy holidays from all of us at the Boston Pops!Conductor Keith Lockhart.
