Dear Santa, how’s it going?

Last month, I was both busy and exited because I had a dazzling, astounding and astonishing trip to the Chan Center.

I was there to perform a piece composed by Stephen Chatman. It was called Echoes of November. I wish I could perform it for you, Mrs. Claus and all of the elves in your workshop. What’s going on in the North Pole so far? I bet your hardworking elves are busy as bees making toys for all of the children of the world. What are your favorite cookies this year so far? I know my favorite cookies for this year are probally choclate covered mints! Its been fun writing two you.

Merry Christmas! From your Friend, Trea.
