Upcoming Concert Repertoire
The Parkville Symphonic Band presents a concert of Christmas Favorites as we continue our 24th season with a Christmas concert to be presented Tuesday, December 11, at 7:30 p.m., at the beautiful Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church, located at 7600 NW Barry Road, Kansas City, Missouri,
across from Park Hill High School.
In addition to an encore performance of the "English Folk Song Suite" by Ralph Vaughan Williams,
we will perform the following medleys of Christmas music:
"C’est Noel", by Andre Jutras, a medley of three French Canadian Yuletide songs. Included are "He Is Born", "The Holy Child",
"Silent Night", and "Angels We Have Heard On High".
On a Catalonian Carol, by Randall Standridge, a hauntingly beautiful setting of a carol from Catalonia, Spain.
The Bells of Christmas, by Bob Krogstad. This medley consists of songs all celebrating the use of bells as a symbol of the joy of the Christmas season. Songs range from "Silver Bells" to "The Bell Carol" and "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day".
"A Most Wonderful Christmas", by Robert Sheldon. This collection of more secular Christmas tunes includes such favorites as "Winter Wonderland" and "I’ll be Home for Christmas".
We will conclude with a carol sing-along with audience members invited to sing with us as we play various favorite traditional Christmas carols.
