’Tis the SEASON . . .
It's the morning of November 1st and the leaves in my front yard now seem to outnumber the blades of grass here in Middle Tennessee. (Did this really happen overnight??) This obvious change of seasons makes it easier to focus on the coming holidays when there is a chill in the air and a even few raindrops (or snowflakes?) falling on our heads!
For church musicians, the seasons of ADVENT (celebrating the coming of Christ) and CHRISTMAS (celebrating the birth of Christ) always provide opportunities for playing and listening to NEW PIANO MUSIC. This year the first Sunday of Advent is on December 2nd! So in this month's newsletter I would like to make you aware of some new piano solos that are available for you to play . . . TODAY! Listed below are some sample titles, but for the entire list go to the website (caroltornquist.com) and check out the individual ADVENT and CHRISTMAS arrangements under carol'sKEYS. (Includes DEMO recordings and some optional RHYTHM CHARTS for instrumental ensemble).
