Our Annual

Holiday Concert of Giving Concerts

Sunday, December 17, 2017
Sunday, December 16, 2018

From our Conductor...

Friends and supporters of the YACCB,


After a wonderful holiday performance

season, we are back to work preparing our

music for the 2017 spring and summer concert

season.  The theme of this year's selections

will be "Music of The British Isles".  While

some of the music will be classic British

band literature, there will be plenty of pieces

that will appeal to all of the audiences

for which we perform. 


Here are a few of the arrangements, pieces

and songs that will be played at our venues: 


The Irish Washerwoman, 2 different arrangements of Londonderry Air, (also known as Danny Boy), movements from the First Suite in E Flat by Holst, Welsh Ayres and Dances, A Scottish Rhapsody, and the Colonel Bogey March.  Another march that will be performed is actually Italian, but titled L'Inglisina, or the Little English Girl. Featured in a medley of movie themes by the late James Horner is My Heart Will Go On, the theme from the film Titanic.  Sir Elton John, an Englishman, is featured as the composer for the medley of songs from the Lion King.  And what British themed concert would not be complete without the British Invasion along with a  wonderful medley by John Higgins simply called The Beatles?  We also hope to feature one of our French horn players, Joe MacBenn, who plays the bagpipes, in an arrangement of Amazing Grace


Speaking of the French horns - we are really blessed to have an outstanding section that you will hear during the playing of a wonderful work titled God's Country. 


We hope that you can come out and hear this group at one or more of our venues this summer.  Our concerts to date are listed on this page.   Thank you for your continued support.
