THE VILLAGES CONCERT BAND CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Tuesday, December 7, 7pm Savannah Center
Several weeks ago, Concert Band members were delighted to return
to playing music at the Mulberry Recreation Center. It had been more
than a year since the group had been together. In addition to enjoying the camaraderie of being with old friends, the musicians readily accepted the challenge to prepare for the upcoming Christmas Concert.
Strains of Christmas music filled the room. Conductor Jean Butler skillfully
guided the band through a playlist filled with familiar and new seasonal tunes.
She has skillfully worked over the weeks to interpret the scores and make
adjustments among the different instrumental sections. The weekly rehearsal
hours dedicated to the program have gone by very quickly.
The public is invited to get their tickets for the event at the Savannah Center -
then put on their red and green sweaters and hats - and come to the Concert
Band’s Holiday Concert. It is scheduled on Tuesday, December, 7 starting
at 7pm. The musicians will be ready to entertain you…and guarantee
their music will enhance the festive mood for the holidays.
The Villages Concert Band
is active in the area, supporting groups and organizations with the funds from all concerts.
Jean Butler, the conductor of The Villages Concert Band has built a great musical organization here in The Villages that approaches every playing opportunity with tremendous professionalism. Interested in becoming a part of The Villages Concert Band?
