Christmas Chopsticks by Ann Cameron Pearce

Always pushing the envelope for unique encores, this combination came to mind the Christmas we had a friend playing vibraphone with us on a couple of other pieces.

At the end of the program, I announced that we (Raleigh Flute Choir) were eager to play a few more Christmas carols, but that Michael was not cooperating. I then invited the audience to listen in as we had a “musical debate” about this issue. Then we performed this piece as our encore. (The flute plays “We Three Kings,” “Silent Night,” “Away in a Manger,” and “The First Noel” while the piano plays “Chopsticks.”) What an audience pleaser and what fun for us!!!
