Not your ordinary Christmas concert.
Performed by the U.S. Navy Band at the 2010 “Season of Magic” holiday concert at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
This version of “12 Days of Christmas” was arranged by Richard Gregory. Gregory first started working on the arrangement while in the Navy in the 1950s. He finalized it in the 1960s when he founded a student a cappella group called the Caterwaulers at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, Mass.
