Notes and Editorial Reviews

Christmas has always had the ability to bring people together and to move and inspire us. Its story, sporty, and nostalgia, has inspired some of the most timeless masterpieces of art, music, and literature. With this album, The United States Air Force Band and Singing Sergeants, conducted by the respected Colonel Lowell E. Graham, bring some of our favorite Christmas classics from the screen and stage and into our stereos. After all, what would Christmas be without the Grinch or the Nutcracker? This album was recorded in January of 1996 in the outstanding acoustics of the Center for the Arts, George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, with Colonel Lowell E. Graham producing.
