The Capital Area Concert Band (CACB) will perform a free, holiday concert at Trinity Lutheran School. Musical selections include "A Child Is Born", "Greensleeves", "On A Winter's Night", as well as "Sleigh Ride" and "A Christmas Festival."

 

The band will also perform "Symphonic Highlights from Frozen", a medley showcasing the most memorable moments from Disney's "Frozen." The "Minor Alterations" piece twists favorite Christmas melodies into something new and inventive by changing keys and styles to give three songs an entirely new character.

 

Band directors will share a few fun facts about the tunes before the band performs them.

 

The CACB is an intergenerational band of 50+ members. Fred Greenwald, Rich Stuemke, Andy VandDeVort, Gus Pflugmacher, Darrle Cannedy, Mark DalPozzo, Harry Hild, Gary Moore and Jan Zepp will share the spotlight as conductors and soloists for a number of tunes.

 

This concert is free and open to the public.
