The Penticton Concert Band.

Penticton Concert Band bringing songs of the cinema

The Penticton Concert Band is performing songs from soundtracks and more at the Penticton United Church Dec. 9.

The Penticton Concert Band is inviting newcomers and long-time fans to come out for an evening that will span from movie soundtracks to pop music hits.

The band has expanded their scope musically in the last few years under the baton of conductor Gerald Nadeau and is ready to hit the stage at the Penticton United Church on Dec. 9.

The show will include selections from the movie Gladiator, Gustav Holst’s Mars, and in high contrast with those tunes are the sweet melodies from Miss Saigon, which will be sung by soprano Krystine Leclair.

The band will also be performing songs from Queen as well as some tunes by Neil Diamond.

The band will also cover some of the all-time Christmas favourites to set the mood for the holidays.  The evening will be jazzed up with a musical tribute to Count Basie and end with the energizing Irish music from Lord of the Dance.

Tickets are $15 and are available from the church office at 250-492-2684, or at the door.

The show will start at 7 p.m.  For more information call 250-488-9733 or 250-493-6215.
