One of the most popular and beloved Christmas traditions in Chicago is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Come celebrate the holidays with the Music Box!
Who could have predicted on that snowy Christmas Eve in 1983, when the operator of a vintage movie theater in Chicago decided to show two old holiday movies and sing a few Christmas carols during the intermission, that 30 years later the Music Box Christmas Show would become a 9-day extravaganza that grows more popular with each passing year? People from all around Chicagoland have made this terrific, old-fashioned event part of their family’s holiday tradition.
Each year, holiday revelers are greeted by none other than Santa Claus, live and in person. Santa welcomes the audience and, accompanied by the theater organist, leads them in the singing of the most cherished Christmas carols of all time. The lyrics are projected onto the theater’s screen so no one misses a chance to sing their hearts out.
Then the audience sits back and enjoys a Christmas movie classic. Some folks like to keep the music going and opt to see White Christmas so they can sing the timeless lyrics of Irving Berlin along with Bing Crosby, Danny Kay and Rosemary Clooney. Others prefer to cheer for Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey and hiss Mr. Potter during a showing of the heart-warming It’s a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra, 1946).
And those truly filled with holiday spirit see both films!

"theme" music for specific events
Once I got mom headed in the right direction (with help of Zoloft at first, then she would respondpositively to other things), I got her involved with garden again. I'd bring her pots for her to deadhead. I had the portable stereo out there from painting, and put on "Divas of Swing" album. This is full of sass and very spunky, perfect for the outdoors gardening. So that's our garden soundtrack.
I chose another one for our weekly "strawberry waffles" event. She can slice the strawberries and help stir. For that event we always listen to one of the best albums ever..."Best of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
