Leroy Anderson — A Christmas Festival (excerpts)
Three mischievous holiday spirits have their own ideas of what a holiday concert should be. As two of the spirits squabble, the orchestra is caught in the middle. To the rescue comes the spirit of "Music" leading the audience in an unusual holiday sing-a-long that breaks the grinch-like "curse of noise" and returns a holiday spirit to the concert hall.
Recommended for PRE-K to Grade 2 and up.
