Christmas Concert Highlights

December 19, 2014

Enjoying the the inspiring confines of the Mount Allison Chapel for a second consecutive year, the 19-piece Citizens Band performed a 2 hour program of Christmas favourites, Classics, and lots in-between. An extensive medley from The Sound of Music and a Flute Rhapsody featuring Anne Varner rounded out the first half. After the intermission, the band was pleased to perform Highlight from Frozen for the first time, after which Don Short offered a saxophone solo on White Christmas. “Nimrod” from Elgar’s Enigma Variations — another first for the band — provided an encore.
