TC band, ensemble plan Dec. 1 noon public concert

Local community members are invited to an informal Christmas concert hosted on the Tabor College campus featuring the Tabor Symphonic Band and Strings Ensemble.

The performance will be at noon Thursday, Dec. 1, in the rehearsal hall (Room 115) of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center, and will last about 30 minutes.

Daniel Baldwin, assistant professor of instrumental music, organized the event and will conduct the ensembles.

?We will be performing several traditional Christmas music selections,? Baldwin said.

The program will include two medleys performed by the string players that incorporate ?Hark! The Herald Angels Sing? and ?Silent Night.? The band will then perform ?The Christmas Song? and a set of German Christmas carols.

?At the end, the band and strings will combine to do a holiday sing-along that will include ?Deck the Halls,? ?Jingle Bells,? ?O Christmas Tree? and ?We Wish You a Merry Christmas,?? Bald?win said.

The concert will be the final performance in the fall semester for both the band and strings ensemble.

?People will be able to come hear Christmas music and still have time to grab lunch before heading back to work,? Baldwin said. ?I would like to invite the available community and Tabor faculty and students.?

The event is free and the public is also invited to attend.
