Southampton Concert Band presents holiday favourites
The Southampton Concert Band will perform its annual Christmas concert Dec. 9, at 3 p.m. in the Port Elgin United Church.
The band will present a wide variety of Christmas song favourites including an arrangement of “Angels from the Realms of Glory” to a swingin’ version of the “Nutcracker” and of course our favourite holiday tune, “Santa Wants a Tuba for Christmas.”
The woodwind players will be well represented in the concert with guest artists “The Georgian Bay Woodwind Quintet” - five excellent musicians who also perform regularly with the Georgian Bay Symphony.
There is an added incentive for families planning a Christmas season event.The Concert Band will perform the classic Christmas selection for the children in all of us entitled, “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, with guest narrator Ms. Natalie Robitaille.
She is the Artistic Director for the Bruce County Playhouse, a professional summer theatre group in Southampton. She is also directing the play “Shirley Valentine” at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound Dec. 12-14.
Entry to the concert is by donation with proceeds for the Southampton Concert Band Music Library.
