by Ken Tilger, Band Education Specialist –
A few years ago, I wrote a post featuring favorite Christmas albums for 3 of our staff including myself. I decided to revisit the subject this year with 3 more staff members. Hopefully you’re getting into the holiday spirit, and you’ll find something new and different to add to your holiday playlist. Feel free to share your favorites in the comments section – we’re always looking for something new to listen to, and Merry Christmas!
