Christmas Eve Concert

Christmas Eve was busy for the Baer family this year as we performed at the AZ LDS Temple Lights again. Instead of cooking goodies and then caroling to a few friends on that special evening, we had the opportunity to sing to several hundred folks in the chilly night air on one of the most sacred nights of the year. When it was all done, the night turned out magical with many friends and extended family there to hug afterwards. But I must say that practicing harmonies, finding tux bowties, matching dresses, securing accompanists and such made for a stressful week up til the big day. LtoR is our family- Tyler, Corey, Michele, Sterling, Brian and Marisa. We also had Sarah Thaxton singing with us as an extra Soprano to help balance with all the men's voices. She was wonderful.
Brian sang "Little Drummer Boy" with his guitar and did a smooth job.

Then Tyler Sang "O Holy Night" with a Josh Groban arrangement background and sounded awesome. We heard many great comments afterwards about their songs.

I had the chance to sing "Gesu Bambino", one of my favorite Christmas Solos and also shared the popular song, "Merry Christmas Darling"

I think the best part was watching my children and husband enjoy performing for others and having the audience join with us on the last verse of Silent Night. It was sweet and stirring. Special Thanks to Sharon Overall for playing the piano for us and 2nd cousin Morgan Wood for jumping in at the last minute with violin!
