Not in the holiday spirit yet? You soon will be if you attend this Saturday night’s free concert at Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS)!
The 50-member Lyme-Old Lyme High School Wind Ensemble welcomes the 102nd Army Band for a joint performance of holiday favorites, along with a few patriotic selections. Among the pieces the bands will perform: “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” Leroy Anderson’s “A Christmas Festival,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” and highlights from the Disney film Frozen, as well as the “Armed Forces Salute” and “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
The 102nd Army Band is an outfit of the Connecticut National Guard in Rockville, Conn. As goodwill ambassadors for Connecticut and the nation, they perform at concerts, ceremonies, and parades all over the U.S. and around the world.
The concert, taking place in the LOLHS auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m., also welcomes back LOLHS alumnus Russell Faircloth, Class of 2014, who plays trumpet with the 102nd Army Band. Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School librarian Bob Hibson is also a member of the 102nd Army Band.
All are welcome. The auditorium is handicapped-accessible and there is plenty of parking at the school.
