Symphonic Band and Orchid City Brass Band Present “Brilliant Brass!” Holiday Concerts
The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches welcomes special guests Orchid City Brass Band for a festive evening of holiday favorites in Brilliant Brass!, a concert to be presented at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth on Saturday, December 2, and repeated at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on Friday, December 8. Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($20) are available at 561-832-3115 or www.SymphonicBand.org. Concert proceeds fund scholarships and grants to local public school music programs.
“We are excited to give our loyal audience a wonderful holiday treat: a virtuoso double header presentation of holiday music by the Symphonic Band and the renowned Orchid City Brass Band,” said Symphonic Band Music Director Mark Humphreys.
“Both bands will perform separately, and then we will share the stage for a truly spectacular sound, performing the well-known Leroy Anderson holiday classics “Sleigh Ride” and “A Christmas Festival,” he explained.
The program also features holiday arrangements by Academy Award winning composer Julie Giroux, “Jingle Them Bells” and “Three Wise Guys.” The music of Hanukkah is portrayed in Lennie Niehaus’ “Three Moods of Hanukkah.”
Additional selections include “Danses Caracteristiques” by Tchaikovsky (widely recognized as music from the “Nutcracker Suite”), “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” “Winter Wonderland,” “The Christmas Party,” and “A Fireside Christmas.”
