Christmas Jazz Concert

The boys and I attended a jazzy/bluesy Christmas concert this evening at Central School. (For my readers unfamiliar with Lake Charles, Central School is a historic landmark that was once the high school in town but now is home to the Arts and Humanities Council and the hub of the area's cultural community. The show was hosted by the foundation "Jazz in the Arts" and featured two local musicians, Chester Daigle and saxophonist/McNeese professor Rick Condit. I found out this evening he also plays the flute.

Watch a youtube video of Chester and Rick here.

The musicians played unique renditions of many holiday favorites. Wonderful show. Oh, and we won a door prize. A candle wreath.

Merry Christmas, everyone! How have you been celebrating the holidays?

We've been involved in lots of holiday music too. Sunday we had a hymn sing at church after worship, yesterday the cantata during worship, and last night a holiday concert presented by the local youth orchestra, which included a carol sing-along. I've sung Silent Night 4 times in the past 8 days, but the nights have not been very silent!
