Join Salem Band for celebrations of the return to indoor concerts and of Eileen Young’s 10th year as music director. Vocal soloists Dr. Cristy Brown and Rev’d Gus Chrysson will premiere arrangements of Wexford Carol and O Little Town of Bethlehem — and don’t miss Chrysson singing “O Holy Night.” Music from “The Nutcracker” and “Charlie Brown,” swing, Salem Band favorite “Morning Star Polka” and more. Free concert. Masks and proof of vaccine/negative test are required for all. Thank you for understanding and for making this easy for the Atkins High School student volunteers.

Enjoy pre-concert music by Salem Saxophone Quartet. Participate in your community with holiday sing-alongs and donations to your Salem Band and charity partner, Sunnyside Ministry. Plenty of free and close parking available.

Established in 1771, Salem Band is the oldest, continuous mixed wind ensemble in the nation. For more information, go to www.salemband.org or www.facebook.com/SalemBandFan/ . Eileen M. Young is music director.
