You’ll hear the stories behind It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas by Broadway composer Meredith Willson (The Music Man) and Willie Nelson’s Pretty Paper. Did you know that the prolific Johnny Marks had three hits during these years: Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (Brenda Lee), A Holly Jolly Christmas (Burl Ives) and Run Rudolph Run (Chuck Berry)? And there were novelty Christmas songs galore like I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. You’ll also see performance clips for It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas (Johnny Mathis), There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays (Perry Como), The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Andy Williams) and Feliz Navidad (Jose Feliciano). See p.10 for information on holiday pie being served after the program! 

Prior to a career as a high school and adult education teacher, John Clark worked in music publishing in Nashville. He enjoys sharing his passion for music with senior centers and senior residences.
