Saturday, December 7, 2019 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
The evening concert will feature all four Festival City Winds’ concert bands – Novice Band; Intermediate 2 Band; Intermediate 1 Band; Advanced Band – each performing their own selections. The bands will be conducted by Wendy J. Grasdahl and Dr. Eila Peterson. There will be a reception following the concert as well as door prizes. The evening’s program offers up different types of dances, events and activities of the winter season, and musical depictions of destination countries that people often gravitate to when it gets cold. Dance along to some Renaissance music by Susato, waltzes by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, music by J.S. Bach set as an Irish jig, and do a Sabre Dance by Khachaturian. Enjoy a sleigh ride (or two), some ice-skating, and some Christmas carolling. Travel to Spain, Ireland, England, and other destinations. The evening ends with the audience clapping along to Strauss’ ever-popular Radetzky March. Tickets: $15/adults; $5/children 12 and under, available at the door. Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Robert Tegler Student Centre, Concordia University of Edmonton, 7128 Ada Blvd., Edmonton.
