I know this isn't exactly the kind of music that usually appears in the Audition Room, but I figure that everyone can use a little holiday cheer, so enjoy these tracks from a Christmas concert I performed in last Sunday, featuring me on piano and some vocals.

The rest of the concert. (I skipped the tracks without piano.)

Hey, nice!

I ran the entire show during the morning to ensure the christmas atmosphere to install in my family. My kids thought it was the most interesting they ever heard coming from Piano Society ;).

Thanks for the show!

Nice music. That Jingle Bells piece, though...interesting, but kind of scary.

And I think Bruce Springsteen would give you a 'thumbs up' on Santa Clause is Coming to Town.

Just listened to your first and last take. Great your introducing and start with the improvisation on Jingle Bells. And the mood in the audience was great, the singer of the last take sounds indeed a bit like Bruce Springsteen, great voice! Very well playing, you not only put the audience in high spirits, me too!

Not really my cup of tea, but your treatment of Jingle Bells (this most inane of songs, which I really detest) it interesting. Such dark invention on such a silly little theme, it's almost a waste.

I enjoyed the Brittten, making me once again marvel at his pianistic and compositorial genius. What a shame he did not write more for the piano, he was a marvellous and idiomatic pianist.
