The Nevada County Concert Band, under the artistic direction of Cheryl Woldseth, wraps up and puts a big red bow on its 2017 season by presenting The First Time Ever Old-Time Holiday Radio Pageant Extravaganza in the style of the holiday radio shows of the past!

Enjoy favorite seasonal tunes played by our 60-member band, plus special appearances by several of our ensembles. Noah Grove, the band's 2017 Jerry Foote Scholarship recipient, will perform a fabulous clarinet solo. And the Band Hands get into the fun too, delivering mirth, merriment, and witty stories, including old-fashioned sound effects, just as they did in the radio programs of yesteryear.

From a German toymaker’s workshop to “My Favorite Things,” there are songs for everyone to enjoy. Reminisce with a fireside Christmas, and listen in as Santa decides which reindeer to recruit for his night’s ride. The band’s many ensembles add spice to this mix, as does a trombone soloist on “White Christmas.” The yuletide continues with French Canadian and Romanian tunes, plus the ever-popular “Santa Baby,” Sousa’s march “The Thunderer,” and much more.

This concert is perfect for the whole family, plus there are refreshments and more in the lobby. So put on your best holiday attire (or ugliest Christmas sweater) and get into the holiday spirit!

This benefit concert supports the Nevada County Concert Band, a 501(c)3) non-profit organization. For more information, please visit our website NCCB.ORG or on Facebook.
