The Season for Music

Tonight was surreal. I got to listen to some of my favorite Christmas music in one of the Piedmont's most acoustical venues. 

The program featured the Choral Society of Durham, the Amalgam Brass, and David Cole on the organ. While I completely get that great classical/sacred music is not everyone's cup of tea, it was nice to see the auditorium almost packed -- and not everyone had gray hair either. 

As far as I'm concerned, Christmas is the season for joyous music. Who cares what kind of music lifts you up to God. For me, John Rutter's compositions like Gloria are beautiful, uplifting music. Love this choir! Such rich harmonies! 

Merry Christmas everyone!
