Shown are performers from last year's Municipal Band Christmas concert, which featured the local band and dance students with Sweetwater Performing Arts.
This year's concert will be held on Thursday, Dec. 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Auditorium. Each year the band plays traditional, yet fun Big Band Christmas music and dance students with Sweetwater Performing Arts join the band on stage for a handful of numbers to perform.
In addition, guest vocalists/musicians Larissa Place and Ryan McCorkle will perform two songs, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Gold and Green.” Although there is no charge at the door, there will be a jar out for receiving donations that will go towards renovations of the new band hall in 2016.
Billy Weems, director of the band, encourages everyone to attend this fun community event free to the public and fun for all ages.
