“My favorite part is all of the instruments coming together, and forming something pretty — I really like all of the songs,” Garretson said, mentioning she did have a favorite piece from the concert. “Some of these tunes are really catchy, but I think the Grinch medley was my favorite.”
Although the concert has the same theme every year, CWSO founder and conductor Camilo Perez-Mejia said there is only one song that remains on the program every year.
“‘Silent Night’ — we do that every year. The last verse we always do a cappella,” Perez-Mejia said, mentioning the piece feels special to him every year. “It’s a moment when everyone participates, because everyone knows the song.”
