The Concert Band of Cobourg and its guest vocalist, Marice Moore, are again hard at work preparing for their Christmas Concerts at Victoria Hall. There are two performances on Sunday, December 18th – one at 2:00 pm and one at 7:00 pm. Classical and contemporary seasonal favourites will be mixed with the type of pageantry and pride of performance that our band is famous for.
Santa will again take time out from his busy schedule to visit and talk with the children at both concerts. As always, this part of the programme brings a warmth and joy that is truly a special part of Christmas. There will also be an opportunity to share in a good, old fashioned carol sing.
“Of our many performances all year round, the Christmas Concerts have to be among our favourites,” says Paul Storms, the band’s Director of Music. The pure excitement of the children spreads throughout the hall and everyone is caught up in the spirit of the season. Wonderful music and wonderful memories make this a special occasion for everyone.
Victoria Hall is spectacular at this time of year – decked out in all its finery. With a rich tradition and a long and colourful history, this is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sounds of one of the best and busiest community bands in Ontario.
While The Concert Band of Cobourg is well known for their summer concert series in the band shell at Victoria Park, this will be the only chance you have to hear them live during the Christmas season. Take the opportunity to enjoy one of Cobourg’s treasures and give your whole family an early Christmas treat.
Tickets are a nominal $6 for adults and $2 for children under 12. All proceeds are shared between the United Way and the Salvation Army Christmas Hamper Drive. Come join the band at Victoria Hall and keep this a part of your Cobourg Christmas Tradition. To order tickets for young and old call the Victoria Hall Box Office at:
