Come celebrate Christmas with the Saint Mary’s University Concert Band on Sunday, December 9, at 4 p.m. in Page Theatre.
The performance will feature both meditative and joyous selections composed for the holiday season, including a delightful setting of the “Ukrainian Bell Carol,” a unique medley of familiar holiday tunes titled, “Minor Alterations: Through the Looking Glass.” Audiences will enjoy beautiful settings of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head,” while two sleigh rides will round out the performance.
Following the concert, a festive cookie reception will be held in the Ben Miller Lobby. Delight in home-baked holiday treats while enjoying the sounds of small ensembles, including a woodwind quintet as well as flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone musicians, performing from the balcony.
Under the direction of Dr. Janet Heukeshoven, the Saint Mary’s Concert Band welcomes musicians from campus and from the community who enjoy performing in both large and small ensembles. Second semester rehearsals will begin on January 14 and are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings during the academic year. For membership information, contact Heukeshoven at email@example.com.
