A special part of this year’s concert will feature the Sippican School Concert Choir, under the direction of Patricia Richard, performing a lovely setting of “Jingle Bell Rock,” “The Little Drummer Boy,” and a colorful arrangement of “Feliz Navidad.”
Also, the youngsters in the audience will enter a drawing with the winners playing the sleigh bells with the Tri-County Symphonic Band in its rendition of Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.”
The concert will conclude with a “Christmas Sing-a-long” featuring the Sippican School Concert Choir and special guests, followed by a volunteer community band called the “Cottage Street Jam Band,” under the direction of Hannah Moore, leading a march from the Sippican School to Island Wharf to greet Santa as he arrives via “water sleigh.”
