Special 'Christmas Card' for 2016: USAF Band WWII Holiday Flashback
As I was wondering what Christmas message to share this year, a friend sent a video clip of a "musical flashback" that hit the right mood for me – I think it’s wonderful so I'm sharing it with all of you.
The clip is the USAF's Holiday Flashback to WWII "celebrating the service and sacrifices of our nation's World War II veterans." If it weren't for people taking pictures with cell phones, you might think this was back in the '40's.
It has a flash mob feel as more and more musicians, singers and dancers show up as the production proceeds in Washington, D.C.'s Union Station. At first, the tempo is a bit slow, but it picks up and leads to a Broadway-style song-and-dance ending.
Please sit back with your coffee or drink of your choice and enjoy. If you are like me, you’ll be glad you set aside time to watch all 9 minutes worth. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas to all. – Joe Vranich
