Christmas Concerts

There are two music performances that I never tire of hearing at Christmas. One is Handel's Messiah



and the other is the Trans Siberian Orchestra. I love Christmas Eve in Sarajevo.



Go here to read the story behind it, and here to see the other video which shows a bit of the TSO story.

I would happily go to both of them in concert every Christmas season. Sadly, I've never been to a TSO concert at all, and the last time I heard Handel's Messiah live was when the Engineer still sang with the symphony, and THAT was a loooong time ago.

Two quite different styles of music, but two stories that very much tell the story of Christmas. Hope. Joy. Giving.

Merry Christmas, my friends!
