Christmas String Ensemble Saturday, November 22, 2008

The story is that the school age son of renowned conductor and long time advocate of music education, Leonard Slatkin, mentioned to his father that he’d like to play on the Christmas Concert at school, but as a pianist, he wasn’t part of a school performing group.  Maestro Slatkin decided to remedy the situation by writing some unique and clever arrangements, designed to showcase a student piano soloist accompanied by a youth string ensemble.  The result is /Holidays for Piano and Strings,/ a collection of ten familiar Christmas carols arranged in non-traditional, creative ways that bring a fresh, new approach to holiday repertoire.  Hear them at www.halleonard.com and order them from Stanton’s Sheet Music, on-line at www.stantons.com or call them at 1-800-42-MUSIC.
