Several years ago in a town near you the local band was all set for the annual holiday concert. They had rehearsed all the carols everyone loves and the auditorium was full of friends and family awaiting the performance. Unfortunately, somehow the music in the folders had gotten completely mixed up, and when the Conductor brought down the baton for the first note complete chaos soon took over. David Shaffer's delightful novelty captures the music of that fateful concert in an entertaining and humorous setting that will be the hit of your next holiday concert!!! Don't miss this one!
