Mark your calendars for an evening of enchanting music.

The Salmon Arm Community Band performs its annual Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10 at First United Church on Okanagan Avenue.

This program has something for everyone, from the Canadian Brass arrangement of Bach’s Little Fugue to seasonal music including A Winter Rhapsody, A Festive Christmas Celebration, and a jazzy rendition of It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Two delightful new pieces donated to the Band, The Airs of the Court by Respighi and The Lyric Suite by Eric Finzi, will also treat the senses.

This year the band has purchased two new instruments for the percussion section. Both the glockenspiel and the xylophone will be showcased.

As always, the band creates Christmas cheer by encouraging audience participation in several traditional Christmas carols.

After the concert, guests are invited to enjoy refreshments with the members of the band.

Admission is by donation and doors open at 6:45 p.m.

The Salmon Arm Community Band thanks you in advance for keeping the concert a scent-free event.
