Concert Review by Paul Ridenour

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Williams

Andy Williams was fantastic.  He has aged a bit (he will be 79 on December 3rd) but still sings perfectly.  He sang It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, Jingle Bells, I'll Be Home For Christmas, Mary Did you Know, and ended with his "favorite Christmas song" Moon River.

He did some songs from his new CD including Lady In Red.  His new CD will also have the Eagles' Desperado.

He also sang the English translation called Words of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, 4th movement.

He told some funny jokes and answered some questions from the audience that were written down before the show.

Lawrence Welk's son and grandson were present along with Andy's wife.

Moon River was worth the entire cost and trip to Branson.  I have always wanted to see Andy in Branson.  He has been there 15 years.  I kept thinking he would die before I had the chance.  Rumor is that this may be his last year in Branson.  He does his Christmas show virtually twice a day from November 1st through December 9th.
