PSC/Community Concert Band to Perform Holiday Concert Dec. 1st

The Potomac State College/Community Concert Band will perform A HOLIDAY CONCERT on December 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Church-McKee Arts Center auditorium on the campus of Potomac State College of West Virginia University. The band is under the direction of Richard T. Frush.

The program will feature a variety of both sacred and secular holiday-themed selections.  Included will be Robert W. Smith’s powerful work “King Of Kings” that is based on Handel’s “Messiah”. Following will be “A Hanukkah Festival” by Chris Bernotas that includes Sevivon-Maoz Tzur-“Hanukkah” and Larry Neeck’s trilogy “Of Kings And Christmas.”

On a lighter note, the band will perform “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year,” “Dashing Through The Snow,” which is based on “Jingle Bells” and the familiar “Do You Hear What I Hear/Snow Bells” medley.

The ever-popular and familiar Burt Kaempfert composition, “Jingo Jango” is sure to prove nostalgic to everyone in attendance.

“A Christmas Festival for Band,” by Leroy Anderson, is recognized as one of the standards in instrumental literature and was made famous by the Boston Pops Orchestra.

To close the concert, the band will ask the audience to join them in singing along as they perform James Ployhar’s “Christmas Sing-A-Long for Band and Audience.”

This holiday concert is of free admission and the public is cordially invited to attend and celebrate the season with the Potomac State College/Community Concert Band.
