The Santa Claus Suite

SANTA CLAUS In his “The Santa Claus Suite”, composer George S. Clinton takes us on a musical journey that is full of the holiday fun, magic, and heart-felt emotion for which Disney’s “The Santa Clause” movies, starring Tim Allen, are famous. Throughout his festive suite, Clinton has sprinkled traditional Christmas melodies that are, as he says, “like treats on a sparkling Christmas tree.”
