I’m so happy to be returning to the Mission Viejo home of my friends Tom and Lydia Dervartanian. For many years, under the moniker Heart Soul and Mind, Tom and Lydia have hosted an eclectic mix of artists for their House Concert series. Three years ago, they were faced with a last-minute artist cancellation and invited me to fill-in. To everyone’s delight and surprise, we almost sold that show out to capacity (35-40 people) in just a little over a week’s time.
This time around, we’re meeting one day shy of December. So the concert will, understandably, feature a lot of music from Christmastide as well as a good selection of old and new non-seasonal songs. Advance tickets, priced at $22.00 each, are necessary to attend. Specific location details will be emailed 1-2 days before the event. See the adjacent links for more info and to reserve your place. The evening will conclude with coffee and dessert and we’re asking everyone attending, in true Christmas spirit and generosity, to please kindly bring a favorite dessert item to share. Whether it’s homemade or store-bought (we know it’s a busy time), we’ll be appreciative and grateful for anything you’d like to bring. If you have any questions about how this all works, please see the FAQ link (the snack-and-beverage options at this gathering will be limited to coffees and desserts) and/or use the website Contact Form. Perhaps after the busy-ness of Thanksgiving and before the incoming wave of Christmas Season tasks, you’ll plan to be with us. We’d really love to have you!
