MARION — “Twas the night before Christmas and all through the land, town folk were gathering to hear the Tri-County Symphonic Band,” wrote the band in a press release. 

The Tri-County Symphonic Band, under the direction of Philip Sanborn, will celebrate the holiday season with its annual Children’s Christmas Concert, on Sunday, Dec.10 at 1:30 p.m. at Sippican School multipurpose room, 16 Spring Street. The concert is designed for all ages and is free of charge.

The Tri-County Symphonic Band will perform seasonal tunes including “A Most Wonderful Christmas,” “Christmas Lights,” “Celtic Carol,” “Christmas at the Movies,” “Christmas Calypso” and “Troika.”

A special part of this year’s concert will feature the Sippican School Concert Choir, under the direction of Patricia Richard performing yuletide carols. The Concert Choir will also perform “The Christmas Song” with the Tri-County Symphonic Band.

The youngsters in the audience can enter a drawing with the winners playing 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, followed by a volunteer community band called the “Cottage Street Jam Band,” under the direction of Hannah Moore, leading a march from the Sippican School to Island Wharf to greet Santa as he arrives via “water sleigh.”

“As the band rounds the corner and jolly Santa’s is in sight, he wishes peace to all and to all a good night,” wrote the band.
