Subtitled A Holiday Prism for String Orchestra, this work can be presented in a theater-in-the-round format or on the more traditional concert stage. Following a broad introduction, each family of the orchestra presents an independent carol. Carols in the medley include "Deck the Halls," "The Ukrainian Bell Carol," "Jingle Bells," "What Child Is This?," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Prepare the sections that require the entire string ensemble then let the sections prepare their own carol independently. Include them all or not. Generous cross cueing guarantees a successful performance. Traditional, contemporary, humorous, and stately, each section brings a unique facet to this holiday prism. (5:56).
