The Night Before Christmas (arr. J. Daniel Smith)

A big shout out to J. Daniel Smith, who arranged The Night Before Christmas, a musical performed at our church tonight. I had a great deal of fun playing the oboe; Daniel scored that part beautifully! I've been enjoying his arranging for better than 20 years. Joel Lindsey, one of the writers of the musical, was in attendance and I don't think we let him down. Well, except that we didn't perform two of the pieces, including one of my favorites, In the First Light.
