What made this live performance so great is that the Pops took equal stage and excelled on “Carol of the Bells” by the Ukrainian composer, Mykola Leontovicvh.  This tune was performed in tribute to the folks of the Ukraine, Reineke said that this association seemed like a “Harry Potter Christmas”, and he was proper.
