Excerpts from review of Newtown concert.
"Each of the tunes was introduced using the PBS video documentary "Once Upon a Sleigh Ride." The transitions from video to live performances were as natural as the music. The video featured numerous pops celebrities such as Skitch Henderson, Arthur Fiedler and John Williams giving their anecdotes and accolades to Leroy Anderson. The wistful "Forgotten Dreams" began on video with Leroy playing piano with his right hand while conducting with his left, and ended with the DSO and Debbie Morris in a lovely flute solo."
