A Great Start to the Christmas Season

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.

The sing-along
 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.
