A Grand-Old Seasonal Tradition
It’s been more than 50 years since The Philadelphia Orchestra recorded one of its best-selling albums - The Glorious Sound of Christmas with Eugene Ormandy. Each year the orchestra reprises that album in a series of perennially popular concerts.
For the Orchestra's musicians, performing such well-known and popular holiday music has its own rewards. For violinist Davyd Booth, who, as a child, listened with his family each year to their LP of The Glorious Sound, this music still engages him, personally and professionally.
