Joshua Shank talks Holiday Choral Traditions

Composer and choral expert Joshua Shank joins us to share a playlist of excellent holiday choral music, and talk about the holiday choral tradition. How do you keep from feeling limited as a choral director by HAVING to put on a “holiday” concert every freaking December? Why are there so many choirs in Minnesota? And how come we don’t sing the national anthem as a group?

He also made us this excellent playlist of all the music he played live on the show so you can get in the holiday spirit and jam out to all the excellent tunes you missed!

Original air date: Monday December 2nd, 2013 on Nuts and Bolts Music on KVRX in Austin.
