Another sultry evening -what passes for Christmas weather in Northern California- found St. Ignatius packed to the sides and the top as we haven't seen her in a few years. The church was decorated for Christmas, with a large black forest of trees on stage, which won't be lit until Christmas. Never mind, the many many longtime fans who come to this concert - many with family members who have arrived for the holidays- light up the church. We like to get as close to everybody as we can - the caroling choreography needs to be pretty precisely timed and requires a certain amount of rehearsal. From our largest venue tonight, we go to the smallest tomorrow - the very intimate Mission Carmel - another magical experience.
