It’s not Christmas without Christmas music! Am I right or am I right? Nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than Christmas music. Listening to the Spelman and Morehouse College Christmas Glee concert was the perfect way to end the first week in December.
are historic black colleges in the heart of Atlanta, just off I-20. While they are two separate colleges, they are located basically on top of one another’s campus, making it more co-ed. The campus area is relatively small, and finding King’s Chapel was easy – we mostly followed the flow of traffic and hordes of people heading to the concert.
The concert mixed traditional songs of my childhood – Silent Night, Tell It On The Mountain and others. However, there was plenty of songs I didn’t recognize, from German songs to ballads that mixed songs together into a melody. The singers didn’t just sing; they performed. There were pianists, violinists, and African drums brought out for special songs. They choreographed hand movements and brought down the house with their unique sound.
Christmas cheer is not found in crowded malls or cyber shopping, it’s in the little reminders of why we celebrate this time of the year. I hope you take a moment to enjoy some Christmas music or traditions that remind you of Christ our Savior and the holiday spirit. Merry Christmas!
