The Oak Ridge Community Band and Wind Ensemble has a Christmas sing-along concert on Sunday.
The free concert is at 7 p.m. Sunday at the First Baptist Church at 1101 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
The concert will be held in the church sanctuary, dress is casual, and song books will be handed to the audience members to sing familiar Christmas carols along with the band, a press release said.
Another highlight of the concert will be several selections performed by the band including Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” Johann Bach’s “If Thou Be Near,” Gustav Holst’s “Christmas Day” featuring a medley of carols, and “The Little Drummer Boy” arranged by former Oak Ridge Community Band director Steve “Doc” Combs and former band member Glenn Bigelow.
The Oak Ridge Community Band is directed by Dale Pendley and assistant conductor Lisa Michaels. Rehearsals are held at the First Baptist Church on Thursday evenings, and musicians who are interested in participating and who would like to join the band are invited to visit the band’s website at www.orcb.org or call (865) 483-3044 for more information.
