Before dawn today — while children were nestled all snug in their beds — I posted a video of Staples High School’s astonishing orchestral and choral performance of Beethoven’s Fantasie Op. 80.
It was “06880”‘s gift to Westport: a beautiful piece on this Christmas morning.
Well, the children have now been up for hours. There’s wrapping all over the place. Beethoven has been drowned out by breakfast.
Time to rock out to José Feliciano.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not — who cares? Our Weston neighbor’s joyful, jingly jangly holiday song is for all the world.
So put down your coffee (or mimosa). Crank up the audio to Spinal Tap 11. Click on the video below.
Feliz navidad, everyone. And to all: Prospero año y felicidad!
