Carol of the Bells

M. Leontovich; P. Wilhousky, arr. Sean O'Loughlin

 

This version is a fresh setting of one of the most popular songs of the season. Notice the Latin sounds and even a tasteful quote from New World Symphony.

Arranger Sean O’Loughlin (b. 1972) is Principal Pops Conductor of Symphoria in Syracuse, NY where he attended university. His music has been performed by many major symphony orchestras, among them Boston Pops, San Francisco, Chicago, and Hollywood Bowl. He was the assistant conductor and arranger for a production of Sgt. Pepper Live in Las Vegas featuring the band Cheap Trick. He has served as conductor for summer tours with Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan and the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration. Recent collaborations include such artists as Sarah McLachlan, Adele, Josh Groban, Steven Tyler, Kelly Clarkson, Blue Man Group, Audra McDonald, Gloria Estefan, Itzhak Perlman, Natalie Merchant, Chris Isaak, Pink Martini and Gloria Gaynor.
