A Christmas Spectacular with the T.C. Williams High School Choir

It's the most wonderful time of the year, especially if you love choral music! There's just something right about dozens of voices joining together for some Christmas cheer, and one of the best choirs in the Washington, DC area is from T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, VA. I popped over for their annual Christmas concert this week and was treated to a thrilling concert of holiday classics, African rhythms, and even a little PDQ Bach with kazoo accompaniment. It was a great preview ahead of the choir's performance on the upcoming "Christmas in Washington" to be aired on TBS.

On the Road to Christmas, A Stop in New York City!

New York City is one of my favorite places to be at Christmas time, so it was a treat to watch the city beginning its Christmas preparations - from Cartier's jewel-box building wrap, to the ice-skaters in Rockefeller Center, to tiny tots transfixed by the Lego store's miniatures.
