The Bonita Springs Concert Band, under the direction of Gary Smith, will present a free concert on Sunday, December 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M. inRiverside Park on Old 41 in Bonita Springs.

The concert includes a wide variety of music in addition to some Christmas and Hanukkah favorites. There will be some of the older standards and some newer selections. A very creative piece Toboggan Ride is an exhilarating race down a snow-covered sled run! African Bell Carol features the percussion section. Robert Smith has taken the beloved Ukrainian Bell Carol and dressed it up with African percussion effects to deliver a wonderful holiday selection. It’s a real treat for the ears! Jay Dawson’s version of Jingle Bells gives a whimsical and interesting treatment to this famous carol—something the youngsters will thoroughly enjoy. So, please bring the children!

Our featured vocalists Janine and Duncan Connell will present Giacomo Puccini’s Nessun Dorma from the opera Turandot. They will also sing ThePrayer–a very wonderful song. It is rare that a song from pop culture can capture the complexities of a classical vocal piece, but this one does.

Oh yes, we’ve asked Vince Lovelle from Pelican Landing to invite his friend Santa again this year and Santa said he’d be there!

Don’t miss out on the fun! Bring your holiday spirit and a chair or a blanket. Refreshments will be available from Royal Scoop Homemade Ice Cream.

We will also be collecting Toys for Tots sponsored by the U.S Marine Corps Reserves. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy that will be given to children in Bonita Springs.
