The Capital Community Band, under the direction of Nick Jacques, will put a bow around 2022 by presenting a holiday concert Sunday, Dec. 4.
The free concert will be presented in the Boldrick Theater in the Carson Community Center at 2 p.m.
The concert will feature “Russian Christmas Music” written by American composer Alfred Reed in 1944. The piece will feature oboist and English hornist, Sharol Thomsen. On a lighter side, the band will perform “Showstopping Christmas” and Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” among other holiday favorites.
The Capital City Community Band was founded in 1978 by Richard Doede as a venue for adult musicians. Many of the members played in high school, college, or professionally; others began playing as adults. All the musicians, including the director and soloists, perform without compensation.
Jacques began conducting the band in 2018 after Doede’s retirement.
