A Christmas Celebration
The report is that there were one million requests for tickets to this year's Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert with the King's Singers. Some who did not get tickets offered to pay $500 to anyone willing to give up a ticket. This has become the biggest event of the season.
It was a great concert, attended by Grammie and Daddy Owen, Sean, Regan, Sophie, Maddi, Spencer, Joseph & Jenni, and 20,000 others.
About half of the numbers were arranged by Mack Wilberg - including arrangements for the King's Singers with choir, orchestra, and bells! Richard Elliott tap-danced through a rendition of "I Saw Three Ships" on the organ, playing the melody with his feet. The Christmas story from Luke 2 was read by the King's Singers in appropriate British accents.
Merry Christmas to all!
