Carolyn Arends Brings Christmas Cheer with Live Stream

Last month, Carolyn Arends celebrated the full streaming release of her Recognition project with a live-stream concert on Facebook that left her fans clamoring for a follow-up Christmas concert. Their wish was her command, and she and her duo partner, Spencer Capier, will be returning to Facebook and YouTube with a very merry streaming event on Sunday, December 12 at 7 PM (ET).

Arends has released two Christmas albums to date: Christmas: An Irrational Season and Christmas: The Story of Stories- each born out of her tradition of writing a new song every Advent. Each album collects both original and classic songs of the season to produce a listening experience that is both lush and organic and always full of wonder and mystery. 

Arends recounts how she came to compose a new Christmas song each year, "Nearly 30 years ago the pastor at my church asked me to write a song for our Christmas Eve service, and I discovered that writing Christmas songs can be an excellent Advent practice - a chance to really think about the Incarnation and try to enter into it in a fresh way." The next year, her pastor asked again. And then again. "Over two decades and a few pastors later," she continues, "we've got kind of a high-pressure tradition going on! Some years I worry that I won't find a fresh angle for a new song, but I eventually discover all over again that the Christmas story is inexhaustible."

On Sunday, Arends will be accompanied by her multi-instrumentalist duo partner Spencer Capier, who has a sparkling Christmas record of his own entitled Christmas Instrumental. Arends and Capier will play a mix of classic and original songs and take requests from fans tuning in on Facebook and YouTube in an evening of pure Yuletide joy. As a bonus for this live stream, Arends will be enlisting videographer The Arctic to optimize the live stream video and sound. "Music has always been such an essential part of this season for me," she adds, "and I am looking forward to sharing this experience with friends close by and around the globe as we await the arrival of the Christ Child together."
