Designed to showcase the percussion and trumpet sections of the band, Wake Up for Christmas has an inherently funny premise: that kids need to be awakened on Christmas! Mixing bits of Reveille with settings of two familiar Christmas time songs, Jingle Bells and Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, as well as fragments of assorted other seasonal tunes, this selection should bring a smile to the face of even the most committed Scrooge. The combining of all the elements at the climax is an inspired touch that ends this cheerful seasonal novelty with a bang!
