Singing Together at Christmas

10 Dec

The Christmas season is here and with all the snow, cold temperatures, lights and decorations, it’s beginning to look and feel like it! However, nothing makes me feel the Christmas spirit more than music. I really enjoy listening to Christmas music, but performing it for others is one of my favorite Christmas activities. Thankfully, my “man-band” Harmonix continues to get together to sing (we’ve sung off and on since high school).

We’ve done ten performances so far this year with three more scheduled. By year’s end, we will have sung in four sacrament meetings, six Relief Society or ward parties, one funeral, a Memorial Day program sponsored by Midvale City and one performance for the inmates at the Utah State Prison. And while we love to sing together throughout the year, our favorite time to perform is a Christmas. There’s just something special about music at this time of year.

Here’s a photo of the group we took for a gig in Bountiful last year. Handsome guys, eh?

A few years ago, I insisted that we come up with a name for the group. Since no one had a better idea, I christened us “Harmonix.” The guys want a new group name, but no one has come up with anything better!

It’s been a great blessing that we have stay connected as friends through our common interest in music. And although we aren’t “professional-grade,” we really do enjoy sharing our feelings and testimonies through song. 

Here are a few videos of our performance at First Night 2007 in downtown Salt Lake City at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Enjoy!
