A Chanticleer Christmas becomes for us always on Thanksgiving weekend, so that we can see as many audiences as possible between then and Christmas. This year we started out at Spivey Hall, long one of our favorite halls, for our first Christmas there. Spivey is near Atlanta, home of our Music Director Fred Scott and his family, so when we go there it's a family affair. The hall was full and happy for our first performance of this year's program, and Fred's sister Martha made sure we ate very well and enjoyed the warmth of her home afterwards. This was exceptionally nice, as we were to get up and on a plane for the second performance, today in Durham, North Carolina.
