Little pieces of Christmas

Christmas is looming and I have been busy doing new orchestral arrangements for two of the many Christmas concerts that will fill December. christmas-musicLast Saturday the Auckland Philharmonia had their first APO 4 Kids Christmas concert at the Auckland Town Hall which was a great success. It was hosted by Kevin Keys, featured Tim Beveridge and was conducted by David Kay. They performed my arrangements of:

  • Snoopy's Christmas - George David Weiss, Luigi Creatore and Hugo Peretti
  • The Little Drummer Boy - Henry Onorati, Katherine K. Davis and Harry Simeone
