Dear Friends,

McMullenI LOVE the holiday season! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. From the lights adorning homes to the carols heard all around, I just can’t get enough. Holiday Cheer! with the Denver Philharmonic is another tradition that fills you with the holiday spirit!

Every year, my family in Boston has a Christmas ‘grab party.’ Everyone brings a gift, we all draw numbers and exchange our prizes. After lots of laughter, fun and a delicious feast, we shut off all the lights and begin our very special Christmas tradition by candlelight: singing carols and the reading of the story of Jesus’ birth.

Up until his passing a couple years ago, it was my grandfather who lead our family caroling. As I sing with the Denver Philharmonic for Holiday Cheer!, I’ll be thinking of my grandfather and the joy the carols would bring to him.

Schubert’s Ave Maria is such a magnificent piece, and who doesn’t love White Christmas? It will be an amazing night filled with true holiday cheer!

Happy Thanksgiving!
