Holiday Music: The Classics and New Favorites

music entertainment, celebrationMusic is as much a part of the holidays as snowmen, candy canes, and gift-giving. Most people look to classics of both religious and popular music, but there’s no shortage of new songs to embrace and include in your holiday repertoire.

Artists in past decades, including Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, and Frank Sinatra, have all recorded enduring holiday favorites. Not to worry however, contemporary artists have continued that tradition and introduced many new choices available in every genre.

In 2017, Beyonce’s holiday tunes included the release of branded holiday merchandise as well. Sweaters, t-shirts, and home décor items were among the potential gift choices available. And the Queen Bee isn’t the only one to add to the plethora of celebrity-inspired loot. Taylor Swift dropped new merchandise in advance of her “Reputation Tour” that aren’t holiday themed, but are sure to find their way into this season’s gift exchange.

Adele is a regular contributor to the holiday sound as are artists like Michael Buble, Kelly Clarkson, and Stevie Wonder. Tony Bennett, with or without the company of headliners such as Lady Gaga or Sting, has a full slate of holiday songs to choose from.

Holiday-themed songs aren’t the only choices for celebratory occasions. Pack your playlist with your all-time favorites and share the joy. Introduce your family and friends to tunes they’re unfamiliar with and ask your friends to share some of their favorites.

If you’re thinking about a holiday blow-out celebration, either at your home or a rented venue, raise the level of your gathering to something very cspecial. In addition to bands and soloists, consider quartets or trios, or special instruments like the harp. How about adding your voice and the voices of your friends and family to the joyful sound?
