Lisa Vroman was her usual funny, lovely self. Sang well, was fun with the conductors and orchestra. The brass doing an off-beat "Little Drummer Boy" was very nice, especially to an overheard song!

Really lovely performance. Very diverse...some brass, some choral, some organ and beautiful soprano and piano. And my 87-year old grandmother loved the sing-along songs!
