A new ( to us) hall and a new audience- the Tilles Center at C.W. Post College of Long Island University, which fit in nicely between our performances at the Met Museum in Manhattan. Feels as if snow isn't far away.

There are only three concert halls - as opposed to churches, museums or missions - on the Christmas tour. It's up to us to bring the Christmas atmosphere on to the stage - and figure out how to stage our opening procession.

If it's Christmas it must be the Biebl Ave Maria. Regular Chanticleer Christmas-goers will recognize the formation.

Lots of enthusiastic folks at the record table.
