One of my holiday highlights was an afternoon recently in Baum Walker Hall’s balcony at the Walton Arts Center watching and listening to Huck’s orchestra teacher and the rest of the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas play lots of beautiful music, including the soundtrack for the short film “The Snowman.” The concert included an audience singalong of festive favorites like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “White Christmas,” and believe me when I say that the son of Troy Schremmer does not hold back when he’s told to sing. The lady in front of us couldn’t resist sneaking a look at the source of such vibrant and loud musicality, causing me to give a humble nod of acknowledgement. I’ve taken Huck to Broadway, I’ve taken him to dance concerts, I’ve taken him to Shakespeare, I’ve taken him to the circus, I’ve taken him to movies, and I’ve taken him to more children’s theatre than he cares to remember. Finally I know what it’s like to sit next to my child in an audience and have my rapt attention and excitement matched, possibly even exceeded. May our stockings be filled with symphony tickets.

Merry Christmas, loved ones!
