It's a Busy, Busy Time of Year
It's a Busy, Busy Time of Year captures the intensity of preparing for the holidays. There is not even time to chat on the phone when there is so much shopping and decorating to do! This song is written with a musical theatre "vibe" - opening with a bit of a "recitative" and then launching into a real showtune.
An instrumental section provides budding thespians some freedom to add some drama to the presentation. This is a fun tune, and a great song to provide older singers with the challenge of mastering the busy, repetitious lyrics.
Composer, Elementary Music Specialist, Performer
Donna has invested her creative energy into dozens of school Christmas concerts during her 37 years as an elementary music education specialist. While regular folks at home were putting up lights, decorating trees and wrapping presents, Donna's Decembers involved hanging giant snowflakes for gym decorations, moving sets of risers and sound gear from one end of the school to the other, and joyously teaching songs to her students to perform in the Christmas concert.
After school responsibilities concluded, there were family Christmas events - another flurry of activity! The busy pre-holiday season comes in many shapes and forms. Hopefully your activities bring you joy (and not stress) and you have time to relax and enjoy yourself at this busy, busy time of year!
