The College of the Mainland Concert Band will hold a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 2 in the Fine Arts Building Theatre on campus.

Under the direction of Sparky Koerner, the concert will showcase a variety of musical selections including, “American Barndance” by R. Saucedo, “Overture for Winds” by C. Carter and “Lawrence of Arabia” by M. Jaree. Additionally, an assortment of festive Christmas tunes will transport concert-goers to the magic of the holiday season.

“I am pleased with the overall sound of the Concert Band this fall,” said Koerner. “There are a good number of instruments in each section to create a good, balanced sound.”

Comprised of both student and community musicians, the Concert Band gives members an opportunity to hone their skills while entertaining the public.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 409-933-8348.
