A couple months ago, my husband, Alex, was drumming with a talented vocalist and guitar player, Johanna Chase. So when CBS assigned me a story on the top female musicians in LA, she immediately came to my mind. Then her PR rep saw the article and contacted me regarding an upcoming benefit show she is participating in. The more I learned about it, the more I fell in love with this amazing event – Beatles on Ukulele: The 50 Greatest Hits, a J/P HRO Benefit.
Like peanut butter and jelly, music and the holidays go hand in hand. From the Lighting of the Tree ceremony broadcast from New York City to other televised holiday concerts, and favorite tunes played on repeat at the mall during the busy shopping season, festive music is literally an instrumental component to holiday traditions. Holiday music shouldn’t be reserved solely as background buzz or as a distant event on television, but should be celebrated locally as well. This holiday season, get in the spirit at one of these nearby holiday concerts.
