They have posted the season for the Carpenters Center at CSULB and there is no Richard Carpenter concert on the schedule. (Drats!) I was hoping that with the new album, he would do a Christmas concert at the center. He has only done one solo Christmas concert. It was in the late 80's with the Garden Grove Symphony. He is hosting a "Signiture series" at the Carpenter with Roberta Flack, George Shearing, and Kathy Matea.
Maybe we can hope for another venue with a "Carpenters Christmas"
