Program Notes

Ode to Joy-

is an ode written in the summer of 1785 by
German poet, playwright, and historian
Friedrich Schiller and published the
following year in Thalia. A slightly
revised version appeared in 1808,
changing two lines of the first and
omitting the last stanza.
“Ode to Joy" is best known for its use by
Ludwig van Beethoven in the final (fourth)
movement of his Ninth Symphony, completed
in 1824. Beethoven's text is not based
entirely on Schiller's poem, and
introduces a few new sections. His tune
(but not Schiller's words) was adopted as
the Anthem of Europe by the Council of
Europe in 1972 and subsequently by the
European Union.


Program Notes (cont.)

The Dreidel Song-

The composer of the English version is
listed as Samuel E. Goldfarb (also S. E.
Goldfarb). The Yiddish version was
composed by Mikhl Gelbart. The meaning of
the lyrics to the Yiddish and English
versions is largely the same. However, in
English the singer sings about a dreidel,
whereas in the Kafkaesque original
Judeo-German version, the singer is the
four-sided spinning top made out of blay
or lead. In the English version, the singer
has a four-sided spinning top made out of
clay, yet clay is not easily spun.


Program Notes (cont.)

Secret Agent Sugar Plum-

is an arrangement of Dance of the Sugar
Plum Fairy from Tchaikovsky's The
Nutcracker. This particular arrangement
is combined with a secret agent theme
running in the background setting the
stage for a fun version of the well known
melody. Despite Tchaikovsky not being
overly satisfied with the work it has
become one of his most recognizable works.
Audiences are introduced to the Sugar
Plum Fairy in the second act. She is the
ruler of The Land of Sweets. The Sweets
come from all around the world including:
Chocolate from Spain, Coffee from Arabia,
Tea from China, and Candy Canes from


Program Notes (cont.)

A Ukrainian Christmas-

The holiday favorite Ukrainian Bell Carol
serves as the foundation for an array of
Christmas tunes that weave in and out of
this fascinating arrangement. Along with
the Bell Carol, you will hear snippets of
We Three Kings; Silent Night; The First
Noel; God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen; Bring a
Torch, Jeanette, Isabella; and Away in a

Stowaway on Santa’s Sleigh-

Experience what it's like to be Santa as he
travels the world on Christmas Eve. Hop
aboard his sleigh as it flies over Asia,
Saudi Arabia, Israel, Russia, Germany,
Italy, England, Latin America and the good
ol' USA. While in each country, a favorite
holiday tune is heard in the style of that
country's music. Try to figure out the
carols as we fly from country to country.


Program Notes (cont.)

Pacem Noel-

“Dona Nobis Pacem” comes from the last
movement of the Mass in B minor (compiled
1749) by Johann Sebastian Bach Johann
Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). While the Mass
was not compiled until one year before his
death, Bach composed each section of the
Mass at varying points in his life as
separate works.
"The First Noel" is a traditional classical
English Christmas carol, most likely from
the early modern period, although
possibly earlier.[2][3] Noel is an Early
Modern English synonym of "Christmas".

Larry Clark weaves these
two great melodies
seamlessly together.

Snow Day Celebration!-

Although not very familiar to our
students from California, this holiday
treat captures the joyous mood of the
happiest of childhood memories- a SNOW
DAY!!! This piece opens with just a glimmer
of the icy wonderland outside and quickly
moves into a gleeful celebration that
captures the freedom and playfulness of
this treasured winter event.
