Here is my repertoire for the upcoming Christmas Banquet this Thursday:

Ave Maria
Oh Little Town of Bethlehem
Away in a Manger
Oh Christmas Tree
Oh Come Ye Emmanuel
Angels We Have Heard On High
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Oh Come All Ye Faithful
Do You Hear What I Hear?
White Christmas
Oh Holy Night
Aud Lang Syne

I may not perform all of these, depending on the flow of the banquet.

Not a bad showing. A little shaky at the end on Aud Lang Syne as I was tired, but all the comments were complimentary.

Here's the link to photos.....

Congratulation on another successful performance.

You didn't really say what kind of group the banquet is for. I assume they are all expecting and receptive to your program of all theremin music?

Thirteen pieces is ambitious even for a crowd of theremin enthusiasts. Perhaps paring it down to ten pieces, or breaking up into two sets, would allow you to complete the program without fatigue?

It was the annual banquet for the Amateur Radio Club of Savannah. The membership was warned beforehand I was playing Christmas music for the event, and attendance was up from last year.

For an event such as this, I didn't play all the pieces. I guess I played perhaps 8 of them. This wasn't a performance so much as background music for the gathering. The only piece I played without the usual hubbub of conversation was the last.

I of course took breaks and ate my dinner too. I am a member of this club.
