Today’s installment of Happy Virtual Holidays explores unusual combinations.

First up, a Jingle Bells medley from 2011.  This montage from the Morristown Green video  the Morris Choral Society Chamber Singers, jazz luminary Grover Kemble, the Harmonium Choral Society and The Christmas Singers.

 

Next stop: 2014. Beethoven rolls over for Joy to Ode, led by Bob McNally and a cast of dozens at the Folk Project:

Finally, back to 2011. (It was a very good year.)  John Walker commands the 4,000-pipe organ at the Presbyterian Church, as June Van Thoen leads nearly 100 voices from assorted area choirs, while Solid Brass provides the horn section, for Angels from the Realms of Glory.

Fun fact: This is the only Christmas song in our series recorded in summer. The American Guild of Organists brought their convention to Morristown and gave this concert on a sweltering July evening.
