Last night Dan and I kicked off the 2015 Christmas season by attending the Temple Symphony Orchestra's "Home for the Holidays" Concert. What a wonderful, uplifting evening it was! Although Temple is not a large city, our professional orchestra is outstanding. Featured in this year's concert were two excellent soloists, as well, Baritone David Small and Soprano Priscilla Santana.
Each year, toward the end of the concert, the conductor, Thomas Fairlie, leads the orchestra and the audience in a Christmas medley sing-along. It's not often that we "ordinary" folk get to sing, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. Great fun!
So, for us, the holidays have officially begun! Wishing you all a joyous Christmas season.
