Holiday Stream: Jennifer Thomas-Carol of the Bells

Jennifer Thomas is a superb piano player and her new release Winter Symphony is exactly that. The beauty of the Winter season and the Holidays come shining through with all the colors and pageantry you would come to expect this time of year.

The focus track “Carol of the Bells,” opens the door to the Holiday with parts of a legendary track that come alive with cascading piano and orchestrations. Classical and New Age music merge with tradition for an entirely new universe of music for a listener to enjoy. 

The video provided displays all the emotion and energy you could find in a traditional holiday song except it is done featuring many different and exciting transitions.

Watch and listen now!
