The BIG ARTS Concert Band holiday concert will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Schein Hall.
The program will include traditional favorites such as “Nutcracker Suite”, “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” featuring the Sanibel Youth Dancing Ensemble, Leroy Anderson’s “Horse and Buggy,” Hanukkah, Festival of Lights”, “Do You Hear What I Hear?”, and vocal solos of the Elvis Presley favorite “Blue Christmas” and Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song.” A sing-along with the audience will top the evening with the annual presentation of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
Mike Lamade, conductor and music director of the BIG ARTS Concert Band, promises a program to please young and old.
“We were sold out last March for our spring concert because I think we’re playing music our audiences enjoy and can relate to. We certainly hope to continue that tradition here on Sanibel with our holiday concert,” Lamade said.
