A Festive Celebration
December 11, 2021
Join the Mill Creek Colliery Band for their presentation of A Festive Celebration on December 11, 2021 at 7:30 PM, at All Saints’ Anglican Cathedral, 10035 103 St NW.
Edmonton’s own 28-piece, British-style brass band will present a musical feast of seasonal and festive favorites. Selections will include the snappy march, Christmas Joy; a unique arrangement of Veni Immanuel; a Bolero-like rendition of Little Drummer Boy; a beautiful arrangement of Greensleeves, featuring the horn section; a German winter waltz Schneewalzer; and a suite of four dances from Tchaikovsky’s seasonal classic ‘The Nutcracker’. Julien Simard will demonstrate the heights and depths of the range of the bass trombone in Frosty the Snowman and Michael Eastep (E-flat bass) will be featured in I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas. The band will be led by principal conductor, David Hoyt.
