Sorry to be conspicuous by my absence lately, but I’ve been spending all my free time here:
Actually, this is my third Christmas concert event this season. I began with the Christmas Pops concerts (also at the Meyerson), conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. There’s a certain sense of irony—at least I hope that’s what it is, I understand most people use “irony” incorrectly . . .
Where was I? Oh yes, a certain sense of irony about a Christmas concert conducted by a Jewish guy, but as he pointed out, “White Christmas” was written by a Jew. And so, I realized at concert event number two (Stonebriar Community Church), was “O Holy Night.”
Why do you suppose Jewish guys write such great Christmas songs?
Anyway, once this last round of concerts is over, I’ll be back online. Until then, you can find me here:
I’m generally on the back row under the organ pipes, center section, left side. If you’re in the Dallas area and could use some musical holiday cheer, please join us. No less than MSNBC.com touted our concerts as one of the “Top 10 Holiday Concerts in America!”
And if you do show up, come say hi. I can generally be found hanging around the upper level of the lobby during intermission, waiting for Santa to come by with his basket of candy canes. If he asks, don’t tell him you’ve been naughty or he’ll break your candy cane. Don’t ask me how I know.
