Holiday Concert Preview - Waukesha Area Symphonic Band

Join the Waukesha Area Symphonic Band for their annual Holiday concert, this year on Friday, December 10, at 7:30 PM in Shattuck Auditorium on the campus of Carroll University.

Who can resist the majestic sound of brass playing holiday music? Or maybe some jazzy woodwinds? What would your holiday season be without hearing Sleigh Ride, or Silent Night? All of this will be include in the concert. And the special arrangement of Silent Night, by Music Director Rick Kirby, has become a tradition on this concert. The performance will feature holiday music performed by smaller ensembles from within the band, as well as the full band.

Admission to this concert is $5, or is free with a donation of 5 non-perishable foods items that will be donated to the Waukesha Food Pantry. Examples of especially needed items include peanut butter, canned chili, stews and meats, canned vegetables, pastas, rice and soups.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the evening of December 10, and maybe pack up some food as well. You'll get a great deal, enjoy a fun concert, and do a great deal of good!
