It's early in the season, but it'll be hard to top the experience we had Saturday night at the Singing Christmas Tree. Ten members of my family came to the Keller Auditorium to take in this year's updated version of the Portland classic--and we were blown away by the musical arrangements, the very diverse and uniformly excellent performances, and the absolutely dazzling visual spectacle. And take a good look at this photo, which my daughter-in- law shot from our balcony seats:
If you look carefully...in the aisle between the choir on the left risers and the tree itself...you'll see a large man wearing his son's coat. Yep, that's me! The wonderful people who are staging this year's Singing Christmas Tree heard that I warm up to be on the radio every morning by singing along with a CD of the Hallelujah Chorus...and invited me to join in. So, surrounded by highly talented sopranos and altos, I did my warbling best. And after the curtain came down, my family invaded the stage...standing where the singers stand...
...and discovered that singers from over the years that the Singing Christmas Tree has been entertaining Portland...have all signed their names and written messages in magic marker on the singers' side of the paneling!
We loved this year's Singing Christmas Tree. Come ready for bright lights, and exciting, inspiring music. Click HERE to find out more!
Mine aren't up yet...I usually try to have them ready to turn on right after Thanksgiving dinner, but this year, we've circled December 7 as the date. I love our lights, but here's no way we'll hold the tiniest little LED candle to the record-setting display that an Australian family flipped on the other night. Check it out!
