Co-written with Claire Cloninger, Christmas is Calling You Home is a charming story about a father who looks back and relives his exposure to the true meaning of Christmas. Beautifully suited for pageant presentations as well as concert settings, there are innovative settings of familiar carols, a delightful medley for children’s choirs, lovely ballads and powerful choral and dramatic moments, all with a focus on relationships and family – so relevant to our culture today. Å great choice for Advent programming. This musical was unavailable for a few years, but is now back as a special order (print-on-demand).
