John Brancy Baritone talks Christmas with Edmonton Symphony
In anticipation of his upcoming holiday concerts (details here) with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, John answered some questions for the ESO. Here’s his answer to what is his favourite Christmas song is:
It has to be a tie between O Holy Night and the Chipmunks Christmas song “Christmas don’t be late”. I know they are basically polar opposites, but it’s their stories and how I connect to them that matters to me. The chipmunks song was my very first solo – I sang Alvin’s line “Me, I wanna hoolahoop” in my local Mall at age 10. O Holy Night is just an extremely rapturous song that I have sung many times and I love singing it in French and English.” full Q&A here.
