"A Whimsical Noel" is a quick read musical for grades three to five. It is funny with a lightly poignant and valuable character lesson at its end. The work is also suitable for middle school music classrooms for sight-recognition (not full blown sight-singing) as the students can name and then sing the five parodies in the piece.
"A Whimsical Noel" features five well known seasonal songs (each in the public domain) with new lyrics. The parodied "Twelve Modern Days of Christmas" can be shortened merely by starting on twelve, while avoiding the rest of the verses.
"A Whimsical Noel" is of value to those of you who have already presented the seasonal concert or musical, but need something to fill the days before vacation.
