Happy Holidays to All!

Dear Friends, We can't say enough to thank you for the great times we have had together over this past year. 2009 was truly a whirlwind for us. We integrated our newest band member -- Ms. Jana Johns on drums -- and produced Cara's third CD, Now I Know, in less than 5 months. We released our CD on May 15th to a phenomenal crowd at the Walnut Room. Both Cara and Cindy had big transitions this year -- Cara's father passed away in May right after the CD release, and Cindy's mother passed this November. And the Cara Cantarella Band family welcomed its two newest members, Tanqueray and Chadesea, two beautiful horses who are now a part of our fold! Yes, two of the horses in the July 24th journal entry became ours over the summer . . . what an incredible year of development this has been! And, most importantly, we had some amazing times with all of you. Thank you for shining your lights so brightly that we can see them whenever we are together. Thank you for spreading the word of our music and our events and for sharing it with friends to produce such remarkable growth in our audience community. Thank you for the most wonderful feedback after shows that we could ever hope to receive. When you tell me that you were uplifted, that a show inspired you, that experiencing our performance motivated you to make a change you've been wanting to and to be all you can be -- well, that, to me, is success. I know it's working. And that is why we do it . . . to have a great time AND help make this world a better place! Our Holiday Revue Concert coming up this weekend is the last event of the year, and we've put together a show for you that we hope will dazzle and delight! Our friends Cindy Hammel-Knipe and Anne Brisnehan have graciously agreed to join us to create a vocal ensemble that is thrilling and soulful . . . the perfect blend of excitement, depth, and passion. Okay, I know I am biased, but you’ve gotta hear these women! : ) Join us for a lovely evening of holiday cheer, spirited music, and most of all – fun! See you at the show-ho-ho! : ) Love and blessings, Cara
