Christmas caroling and a tree lighting ceremony will precede a Christmas concert presented by the Tusculum College band program at 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The ceremony is free and open to the public. Cookies and wassail will be served after the tree lighting in the lobby of Annie Hogan Byrd.
The Tusculum College band program will then welcome the Christmas season in its annual holiday concert. The performance will be at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building.
Interesting visuals and a few surprises are planned for the concert that will feature Christmas standards and contemporary carols. The Concert Band will be performing “Feliz Navidad,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Happy Christmas (War is Over),” “Candlelight Carol” and “Christmas Lights.”
The holidays will take on a swing step as the Jazz Band performs “A Chili Pepper Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “It’s the Holiday Season,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Everybody’s Waitin’ for the Man with the Bag.”
The Handbell Choir will perform “See Amid the Winter’s Snow,” “Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella” and “I Wonder as I Wander.”
The band program began in 2010 with the formation of a pep band and has grown to include a Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Handbell Choir and various small ensembles.
