December 19, 7:30 pm
The Perth Citizens’ Band will be holding its Annual Christmas Concert on Tuesday December 19th, 2017 starting at 7:30PM. This year marks the 25th annual year of the event, which once again will be held at St. James Anglican Church, at the corner of Drummond and Harvey Street in Perth. The long standing tradition of the Christmas Concert at the church was revived in 1993 by conductor Brian Tackaberry. From the 1920s to 1940s the band had previously played concerts during the Christmas season. Guests for this year’s event will be Perth’s Town Crier Brent McLaren, and The St. James Four. The St. James’ Four hails from Perth and bring you familiar but fresh sounding jazz from an earlier era. It features Val Leavitt on piano, Peter Woodwark on stand-up bass, Rebecca Worden as vocalist and on clarinet and Jim Wright as drummer.
The Annual Christmas Concert will feature a variety of sacred and popular tunes for all ages. Admission for the evening is $5 per person or $10 for families.
