‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the land, Town folks were gathering to hear the Tri-County Symphonic Band.
The Tri-County Symphonic Band, under the direction of Philip Sanborn, celebrates the festive holiday season with its annual Children’s Christmas Concert, on Sunday, December 11, 1:30 pm at the Sippican School, 16 Spring Street, Marion MA, in the Multi-Purpose Room. The concert is a wonderful family experience designed for all ages and is free of charge.
The Tri-County Symphonic Band will perform seasonal favorites, including “Bells”, “A Christmas Festival”, “An American Christmas”, “Three Moods of Hanukkah”, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Christmas in Poland.”
A special part of this year’s concert will feature the Sippican School Concert Choir, under the direction of Patricia Richard, performing delightful yuletide carols. The Concert Choir will also perform “The Christmas Song” with the Tri-County Symphonic Band.
The youngsters in the audience will enter a drawing with the winners playing the sleigh bells with the Tri-County Symphonic Band in Leroy Anderson’s, “Sleigh Ride”.
The concert will conclude with a “Christmas Sing-a-long” featuring the Sippican School Concert Choir, 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.”
As the band rounds the corner and jolly Santa is in sight, he wishes peace to all and to all a good night.
