Christmas Music 2012

This year was especially ringing with the sounds of the christmas and holiday season.  From the  Kimbirdlee Fadner Trio rousing up the streets of Montclair Village, to the reverent and joyous solos I had the honor to sing for some Christmas services, I am so grateful to have these memories and videos to remember this year by!  Click on the titles to see video clips:

The Montclair Village Association invited us to be a part of the festivities for the Holiday Stroll.  My brother, Matt, joined us and he, Jonathan, Baby Santa and I hit the streets with our songs.  It was super fun.  Wayne at Grille One was our gracious host.  You should go get dinner or lunch there when you are really hungry - the food is sooo yummy and lots of it!  Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to play there again.  Matt just finished his latest CD with me on vocals - it's full of songs that have a latin flair with wonderful words of love and life and love, love, love.  We really want to throw a CD release party soon... any ideas?  More on that soon...

I've been the soloist at the Point Richmond Church of Christ Scientist for a few years now.  This year's Christmas service was special (it usually is!)!!!  My family was in town and came along.  Of course, Baby Santa was there too.

Singing Handel brought back my opera chops and reminded me how fun it is to sing fast and really high!  My 60s dress was hand made by Margie (in the photo) from church.    Love it!

For the second year now, I had the honor of joining the choir at the Church of our Saviour in Mill Valley.  Thanks to Stephen Beecroft, who I met doing Hot Mikado last year, this is becoming a tradition too!  I sang the solo in What Child is This and Away in the Manger, as well as the choral service that night.  The director, Daniel Hoggatt, is a great pleasure to sing for!  I know daddy and grandpa had their ears full of crying Baby Santa the entire time, but Baby loves to sing too.

I am always looking to find more opportunities to sing.  If you hear of anything, please send it my way!
Lots of love and blessings for the new year.  xoxo - kimbird
