The award-winning Tacoma Concert Band, the Northwest’s premier symphonic band, will present “HOLIDAY TRADITIONS,” its popular concert of holiday music, on Sunday afternoon, December 7th, 2:30 p.m., in Tacoma’s Rialto Theater.


Last presented in 2012, the TCB’s holiday concert has become a new tradition for the band. With different music but the same joyful spirit, this concert will open your celebration of the holidays—whatever holiday it is you celebrate—in grand and glorious style. It is NOT just the “same old music” you’ll hear on the radio and in every store and elevator, but fascinating new variations on familiar holiday themes


This year the program will feature KIRO’s DAVE ROSS, the Northwest’s most popular radio personality, reading “The Night Before Christmas” as reimagined by composer Randol Bass, a performance not to be missed. Also featured will be vocalist Melanie Vail. Composers represented will include Leroy Anderson, Serge Prokofiev, Victor Herbert, and Percy Grainger, among others, plus several arrangements in the style of Mannheim Steamroller!


Plan to join the Tacoma Concert Band for the holiday season’s happiest and most jubilant musical event, “HOLIDAY TRADITIONS.” Tickets begin at only $18, with substantial discounts for students, seniors, and military personnel. It’s a Sunday matinee, so bring the whole family!
