The Bellingham Herald and The Scramento Bee agree: The 12 Notes of Christmas sets you on the way to a unique holiday party.
The 12 Notes of Christmas is a mashup of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and the song The Twelve Days of Christmas. Following the opening line of Twelfth Night, “If music be the food of love, play on,” 0 meets Shakespeare on the introductory Day (Christmas Day) to find out about the 400th anniversary and plans a celebration with the rest of the numbers. They travel the world for the next 12 days to create the ultimate holiday band to serenade Shakespeare on Jan 6 (Twelfth night) in the Globe Theater by playing the Twelve Days of Christmas with the instruments they collect. Each instrument has a numeric link (i.e. Day 1 is the didgeridoo in Australia and Day 5 is Temple Blocks from Asia that come in sets of 5). A map of the world tracks the journey from day to day.
Erin Davis writes:
During each of the connected videos, guests of all ages will learn about instruments, holiday celebrations and food from around the world. Each episode opens and closes with a curtain to remind all of Shakespeare as a master playwright.
