The Montana Tech Band’s Thirteenth Annual Christmas Concert is Friday, December 1th at 7:00 pm in the Mother Lode Theatre. This concert is free and the public is cordially invited. 

The concert will start with Christmas Pipes by Brendan Graham and most notably performed by Celtic Woman.  Next is Jingle Bells arranged by Jay Dawson, C’est Noel , written by Andre Jutras and Adventum by Jared Barnes.  James Swearingen is a well-known composer of concert band music with over 200 publications.  We will perform two this evening; The Sounds of Christmas Joy  and I’ll Be Home for Christmas.

The second half of the concert will feature John Rutter’s Candlelight Carol, and a fun arrangement by John Moss that features highlights from the Night Before Christmas and The Polar Express. We end our concert with two favorites; All I want for Christmas is You, and Sleigh Ride.
