Season's Greetings!

It's here again! The season to be jolly. The consumer season. The season for caroling, for egg nog, for Wassail and stockings. And even the season for bah-humbugs! Although the jury is still out on the "fiscal cliff", we've survived yet another apocalypse and made it through another cycle of winter, spring, summer and fall.

At the very root of this holiday season is the inescapable fact that a child was born in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago, and His birth changed the world. Forever. No matter what your personal faith, no matter what you believe, your life is affected in some way by the legacy of that long ago night. It is my fervent wish that all may realize the peace and the promise of the season. That the Christmas miracle might touch your heart and your soul in the most meaningful way.

On behalf of Cantata Singers past, present and future, we wish you all the joy and peace of Christmas and the hope of the very best in the New Year!  - - will
