Simply fantastic! This endearing arrangement uses narration based on the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas," interspersed with popular Christmas carols such as Ding Dong! Merrily on High; Jingle Bells; Up on the Housetop; Jolly Old Saint Nicholas; and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Perfect for featuring students, staff, or administration, this story comes complete with optional sound effects that can easily be made by members of the orchestra. Music and narration are always separate, so this work is easy to put together. Adorable!
Audiences, both young and old alike, will delight in this special musical presentation of Clement Clarke Moore's Christmas poem The Night Before Christmas. It is now a tradition in many American homes to read the poem, written in 1822, every Christmas Eve. Narrated by one to five people, this work presents the perfect opportunity to feature students, faculty, support staff, or school administrators. Dress for narrators may include choir robes along with black folders or simply appropriate outfits complimented with Santa hats. Between readings, the ensemble performs seasonal favorites and provides the audience with a few humorous suggestions. Above all else, have fun and may you enjoy this Christmas season!
