Christmas Gala Music Selection

On Friday the Saint Bridget School is holding a fundraiser Gala at the Sheraton Tara. This is sure to be an exciting event with great food and entertainment.

Gala Music

I am helping a committee of volunteers put together the music for the Gala. The theme that we selected is Christmas with some 1980s/1990s dance music.

Still Time to Attend!

If you're going to be in the Framingham area on December 8th, why not attend a fun event? There’s still time to attend the Gala! Head over to the Saint Bridget website and sign up. I don’t believe that there’s going to be any tickets available at the door.

There’s a large growing list of auction items, including:

  • Wine Tower - One bid wins you a large selection of quality wines!
  • Disney tickets
  • An airplane ride to the Vineyard
  • An Aruba Vacation
  • 50,000 airline miles
  • beautiful class projects from the youngest students
  • Principal for the Day
  • front row seats at First Communion and Graduation

Breaking it Down to Categories

We have identified the need for four main categories:

  • Music for the Cocktail Hour - Need some quiet music so it doesn’t drain out people when they arrive.
  • General Music - Start the Gala with some popular Christmas Music.
  • Music for Dinner Time - Some nice Quiet Music while people enjoy their food.
  • Music for Dance and Auction - Exciting music to make it fun night.

Christmas Music List

This is the collection of music that we have select, it’s pretty much a collection of some of the most popular Christmas songs of all time. We select the appropriate artist that most people would associate the song too. Since Saint Bridget school is a Catholic school, we wanted to include some popular Christmas music that would be played at school/church.

I thought I include the list here so other people that are putting together similar events can have a nice music to select from. All of these songs are available on iTunes. You can find popular music collections that contain many of the classic songs by Bing Crosby, Andy Williams and others.
