Holiday Medley Score-Videos!

November 28, 2017, 6:47 PM · I've been starting to get Christmasey already this year, keeping some of my personal Christmas traditions since 2014. One thing I did that Christmas was get my violin polished and my new bow; this Christmas, I'm hoping to do something similar - probably just get my current bow rehaired, but my new 2016 violin needs a bit of a touch-up. I've been scratching the wood a little bit from some of my pizzicato things I've been doing recently - like this morning, practicing these strummed four-string chords in Ravel's "Blues" and working out that new technique. Well, I'm just telling myself it adds character to the look of the violin. Anyway, I'm so excited for our Christmas concert, playing Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride", the third of Mozart's "Drei deutsehe Tänze", and Robert Wendell's "Caribbean Sleigh Ride". Along with our usual assortment of various Christmas pieces with the choir, of course. Speaking of Leroy Anderson...

I decided I'd listen to "A Christmas Festival" (which I played throughout high school) once through before I get into more of my work for the evening, but unfortunately, a really festive video I used to watch appeared to have been taken down! What I did discover was a score-video of the piece, as well as several other arrangements and medleys of various popular movie scores, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which I just watched this past weekend. I thought I'd share a few of these Christmasey scores with you as a bit of early holiday cheer! Enjoy.
