The Tri-County Symphonic Band, under the direction of Philip Sanborn, will celebrate Christmas with its annual Children’s Christmas Concert, Sunday, Dec. 8. The 1:30 p.m. concert at the Sippican School’s multipurpose room will merge with the holiday stroll, also taking place that day. 

The concert is designed for all ages and is free of charge. The Tri-County Symphonic Band will perform seasonal favorites including “Holiday Emblem”, “Ding Dong! Merrily on High,” “Wassail,” "Frosty the Snowman,” "March of the Toys" and “Troika.”  

This year’s concert will feature the Sippican School Concert Choir, under the direction of Patricia Richard, performing an energetic arrangement called “Jingle All the Way,” a setting of “Infant Holy" and a colorful rendition of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree." The concert choir will also perform "The Christmas Song" with the Tri-County Symphonic Band.

Children in the audience will enter a drawing to win a chance to play the sleigh bells with the Tri-County Symphonic Band in Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.”

The concert will conclude with a “Christmas Sing-a-long” featuring the Sippican School Concert Choir and special guests. Then a volunteer community band called the "Cottage Street Jam Band," under the direction of Hannah Moore, will lead a march from the Sippican School to Island Wharf to greet Santa as he arrives via “water sleigh.”
