The stockings are hung by the chimney with care as the City Kinsmen Band members prepare for their annual Christmas concerts.
The Intermediate, Daylight Players and High School All-City Bands performed Sunday, Dec. 8, while two new groups, the NBCK Choir and the Battlefords Jazz Orchestra will join the Senior Band on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 1:30 p.m. at the Kinsmen Band Hall at 1801-104th Street. Admission is $5. Tickets are available from band members and at the door.
“Our 70 year celebration concert in October was so fun,” says Michael Alstad, the director and general manager of the Kinsmen Band. “We are excited for these performances and holiday concerts are a great way for families to enjoy good music and celebrate the season.”
In addition, the Kinsmen Bands are using their performances to benefit the Empty Stocking Fund. Band members have already started filling boxes to donate. Audience members are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys for children 12 and under as well.
The NBCK Band provides opportunities to play/perform (or learn to play/perform) woodwind, brass, percussion instruments, or sing as part of a band or an ensemble. Anyone age eight and up is welcome to join. NBCKB offer options at all ability levels for participation.
