the magic of christmas and the charlotte symphony

i love the holiday season. no, really, i love it. i pretty much envision myself as the mommy version of "elf." my house is already decorated for christmas. my ipod is constantly on a christmas music rotation. my mind is buzzing with christmas activities. i'm ready to spread some christmas magic. 

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.


i'm adding something new to the december activities this year. the charlotte symphony invited me and some of my blogging friends to take a girl's night out to see them perform "the magic of christmas" conducted by Albert-George Schram if you know me at all, you know that i have a special place in my heart for music. this is the marriage of two of my favorite things, music and christmas. i couldn't be more excited. 

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.
