Piano Music for the Season


Piano Music for the Season

It’s hard to believe we celebrate the birth of Jesus in just a few days.  Where has the year gone? So much has happened—in the world and in my life. Some of the events have given me happiness; others have filled me with a deep anxiety. Yet, the holiday season always puts everything in perspective. Jesus is the reason for the season, as the well-known saying goes.

Focusing on our Savior can help us to feel joy despite adverse circumstances.  We will be able to see beyond the temporary setbacks of worldwide chaos; prevalent anger and disrespect; and, personal problems.


I find that Christmas music, especially, can set the tone for more joyful, Christ-centered living. It’s a way to get in touch with that divine spark within when the world gets confusing and frustrating. I hope you enjoy my humble rendition of a Silent Night/O Holy Night medley:
