i use any and every excuse during this season to do something special. every night is a family night or a chance to drink hot chocolate together. all of a sudden, my kids don't mind spending time together as long as we are all cuddled together watching a christmas movie. for one month, every night is special. every night is a chance to create a new memory.
this isn't your average symphony performance either. there will be the Caroline Calouche & Co flying aerialists performing while the music is being played and a portion of the concert is a sing along. you heard that right. aerialists are performing during "silent night" and "angels we have heard on high" and there is a sing along. the "elf" in me is already chanting, "the best way to spread christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." oh, don't you worry. i've got some lungs. i'll be spreading lots of cheer that night.
if you live in the charlotte area, the symphony is performing "the magic of christmas" from thursday, december 5th through sunday, december 8th. you can get tickets by visiting their website at www.charlottesymphony.org. if the charlotte area is not your home, look up your local symphony performances during the holidays. join me in adding some musical magic to your christmas season.
