Dallas, TX (December 11, 2012)—Stephen Arnold Music has recorded a new spin on classic holiday songs in support of the nonprofit organization Little Kids Rock.
The Six Strings of Christmas presents 16 holiday season tunes; each track is a virtuoso guitar performance with four-, six-, eight- and 12-string instruments all represented, arranged and performed by studio musicians and talent that work with Stephen Arnold Music throughout the year.
The result is a collection of fresh renditions of “Joy to the World,” “Ave Maria,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Come Emmanuel,” “The First Noel,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and 10 more, recorded at Stephen Arnold Music’s studios in Dallas, TX.
Available on iTunes and CD, all proceeds from The Six Strings of Christmas go to Little Kids Rock, a national nonprofit that transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools. Little Kids Rock partners with school districts, training public school teachers in their innovative curriculum, and donating all of the instruments and resources necessary to run full-fledged music programs.
“We’ve always had a strong belief in the power of music to positively affect the life of a child,” Stephen Arnold, president of Stephen Arnold Music says. “We have the great fortune to work with these amazingly skilled musicians, and after we got to know Little Kids Rock, it made perfect sense to put it all together this holiday season.”
Arnold continues, “By collaborating with them on The Six Strings of Christmas, it’s our hope that underprivileged kids across America will get to experience music as an anchor, and an inspirational force, in their lives.”
