A Day of Remembrance Memorial Day Concert – LaSells-Stewart Center 7 pm

Please join us for our annual, free Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 15th, 1 pm, at the Russell Tripp Performance Center at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd SW, Albany OR 97321

Any former band member who would like to play for this finale should RSVP Richard Sorenson at sorensontuba@gmail.com   

The program will include several medleys of religious and popular Christmas songs: A Yuletide Portrait;  A Canadian Brass Christmas; A Christmas Portrait; and Wishing You a Merry Christmas;  Fum, Fum, Fum as arranged for the Mannheim Steamroller Orchestra; Carol of the Bells; The Nativity Paintings and Finale from Scenes from the Louvre; and The Bells of Christmas which has narration.   For the special finale to the program, the band has invited former members of the band to join us on the stage to play our  two traditional closing numbers for many years:  Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson and  an audience sing-a-long of Adeste Fidelis (O Come all Ye Faithful). 

If you are a past band member and wish to join us for our last 2 pieces, plan to come to a short rehearsal at noon the day of the concert.  Please list your instrument in your email response to Richard Sorenson so we can make copies of the music for you to use.  If you have a music stand it would be helpful to bring it. We look forward to seeing you again!

A reception to honor Dr. Richard Sorenson will follow the concert.  

Audience members may make a free-will donation after the concert to help defray the costs of presenting the program.  No tickets are required for the concert.  Concert sponsors are Russell and Duffy Tripp through the Linn-Benton Community College Foundation.
