S.F. Symphony's Deck the Hall shows

We were thrilled to be featured artists in San Francisco Symphony's "Deck the Hall" holiday concerts for children at Davies Symphony Hall, on December 7th and 8th, 2008.

With the orchestra playing new arrangements by Julian Smedley, we performed Julie's two-part composition "Little Gouda," and "Hanukah O Hanukah." We also joined the orchestra, singers from "Beach Blanket Babylon," and folks in Santa and Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer outfits, for a medley of holiday songs in the concert's grand finale.  One show also featured Michael's narration of the Story of Hanukah, with sound effects from the band.

There are quick shots of the Red Hot Chachkas (at around 28, 47, and 73 seconds) of the ABC Local News on KGO-TV's two-minute segment about Monday's S.F.Symphony concert for school-children: http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/video?id=6545432 . It was a privilege and thrill for us to perform at this show, as well as at the two weekend concerts.
