EMCS hosts winter concert

Concert Band will share its festival pieces

Fresh off musical success at the Comox Valley Concert Band Festival, the EMCS instrumental music Department, under the direction of Laurel Parliament, is preparing for its annual Winter Concert.

The concert is Thursday (Dec. 12) at Edward Milne Community Theatre, beginning at 7 p.m.

The audience can expect a short and sweet evening of music with ensembles, solo, and small group performances, Parliament said.

The Concert Band will share its festival pieces: Champions of Freedom (a march-style classic); Air from County Derry (the ever-emotive folk song Danny Boy), and Arabian Dances (a piece that features all of band’s sections).

In addition to some songs of the season, the audience will also hear the jazz stylings of saxophone soloist Trent Rankin, piano prodigy Simon Eskildsen, and the expressive playing of Nolan Branch.

Admission by donation.
