MOUNT VERNON– The Eastern Iowa Brass Band will present its annual Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mount Vernon district auditorium.
The first half of the concert will feature the band’s show from the recent U.S. Open Brass Band Championships in St. Charles, Ill., where the band received fourth place. The contest music pays homage to the movie “Brassed Off.” “The William Tell Overture” will conclude the first half. The second half will include favorite Christmas songs and medleys, and perhaps even a visit from Old Saint Nick himself. A cookie reception will follow.
The 2011-2012 season marks the band’s 25th anniversary. Tickets are $10 for adults and $4 for students. For more information, please visit the website, easterniowabrassband.com.
