Winterfest '16

Friday, Dec 16, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Senior Center, Bond Park
Cary, NC

It’s December, time for the band to join again with the Cary Senior Center in our eighth annual musical celebration of the holiday season, Winterfest ’16. In recent years we've held a very popular carol sing-along, so we'll be doing it again. (Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite carols.) There'll be music to celebrate your favorite holiday festivities - Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, maybe New Years, and of course, a Sleigh Ride. We will again feature a few smaller ensembles of band members bringing you holiday favorites. Come enjoy all your favorite holiday melodies at Winterfest ‘16.
