[My apologies for being late for two days. But sometimes it happens that, for some reason, you don’t open your little window of your advent calendar for a day or two, and then you have more than one to open in one day. And it’s kind of cool that day, isn’t it ;)]

Last but not least in our Christmas series on the Texas Capitol: music! Last year, I had the opportunity to see carolers around lunch time at the Capitol.

It turns out that during the month of December, every business day at noon, they have a choir and/or an orchestra singing and/or playing in the Capitol’s main rotunda. From one have been told, it varies everyday, sometimes it’s staffers, sometimes it’s children, sometimes adults.

When I went earlier this week, it started with an orchestra made up of young players.

They played for about 25 minutes, then made room for a choir!
