The Orillia Silver Band will be performing its annual Sleigh Bells and Brass Christmas concert. The concert will feature both new and traditional music of the season, with ample opportunity to sing your favourite carols accompanied by the Band. On the programme: Alfred Reed’s beautiful “Russian Christmas Music” (a real showcase for festive percussion); the exciting “Gaudete!” By Kevin Norbury – based upon an ancient French carol; and a perennial holiday favourite, Leroy Anderson’s “A Christmas Festival”.
And if that’s not enough, the Band will be selling a new Christmas CD at the Concert. “Christmas Time is Here with the Orillia Silver Band’ was recorded last March at St. James Anglican Church in Orillia. The CD features both new and classic Christmas works that have proved popular at the Band’s Christmas events. The CD will be on sale for $15.00. So plan to start your Christmas shopping early; it will make a great stocking stuffer for music lovers.
