The NSO Pops Holiday Concert 2013
The choir that they had up there singing with them was pretty good too, and they had a guy named Brian Stokes Mitchell join in as a guest vocalist for the show, too. He was AMAZING. He had a great sense of humor, and such a wonderful voice. He sang the heck out of The Grinch. SO good.
As a nice capper to the evening, Santa Clause stopped by for a visit at the end of the show and handed out candy canes while it snowed indoors!! How did they do that?!
Generally I was very excited to be up in the balcony because of how great everything looked and sounded, but when I couldn't get a candy cane from Santa, I was devastated.
Later, on our way out, I learned that Santa had kindly given little sacks of candy canes to the ushers, and we got some after all! It was a Christmas Miracle!!!
