December 5th, 2010 in News

Holiday music will fill the Miller Performing Arts Center on Tuesday and Thursday evenings this week.

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" will be among the fun and festive music presented by the Jefferson City High School concert band at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

That ensemble will share the stage with the freshman percussion ensemble and two jazz bands.

Then at 7 p.m. Thursday, the Jefferson City Community Symphonic Band will join the high school Symphonic Wind Ensemble for a combination concert of traditional and holiday literature.

The high school orchestra will join the wind ensemble for the Hanukkah tribute "The Eighth Candle."

That concert also will include a fanfare of "Adeste Fidelis," "Folksong Suite" by Ralph Vaughn Williams and "The New World Variations" by David Schaefer, who recently visited the band's rehearsal.
