Take in seasonal music as performed by Highland’s Concert Band and Orchestra.
The concert band, under the direction of Scott Stich, will be playing many traditional Christmas Carols — plus a Hanukkah song, “The Eighth Candle,” by Steve Reisteter. Alfred Reed’s arrangement of “Greensleeves” will be prominently featured, as well as “The Christmas Song” by Mel Tormé.
The Orchestra is conducted by Brandon Lamm, featuring the music of “Five Ukrainians in a Bell Tower” — a mashup of Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five,” traditional song “Carol of the Bells, ” a Robert W. Smith transcription of the classic Gustav Holst tune “In the Bleak Midwinter” and “Somewhere In My Memory” from the movie Home Alone by John Williams. Rounding up the program is the popular “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson.
