That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown

Last night I took part in a wonderful, fun Christmas concert with my pals from the Corktown Ukulele Jam, the Corktown Chamber Orchestra and about a hundred enthusiastic singers from Choir! Choir! Choir! There were carols, Corelli, a Chanukah tune, George Michael ( yes, of Wham! fame, a rousing version of “Last Christmas”…and I’m not ashamed to admit I loved it), and we ended with a rousing Hallelujah Chorus. There was also some Linus and Lucy, and a reading from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

A propos, as this is my Christmas tree:

The Ukes were up in the choir loft, so you can’t see us, and 35 little ukuleles weren’t much of a match for 100 big voices,   but as our fearless leader, Steve McNie, said, it’s like a pizza: it’s about the flavour of the whole thing rather than one ingredient.

Here’s a little taste of our Corktown festiveness: “Oy, Chanukah“, “Last Christmas” and the “Hallelujah” chorus.
