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?

Attendance Policy for playing a Concert


Attendances at

rehearsals are expectations for

a bandsman to play

in the concerts.

There could be cogent reasons that prohibit attendance at every rehearsal.

However, the band’s

policy to play in a concert include attendance of the

last four rehearsals 

plus the dress

rehearsal.

If there are unusual

circumstances that

preclude meeting

the attendance requirements,

a member may

contact the Director

in an effort to obtain

an exemption.

Section leaders are

to be informed about

any granted

exemptions of

the policy.
