The Illinois Brass Band, under the direction of Music Director Stephen Squires, is proud to announce the following upcoming holiday performances.

Both performances will consist of Christmas music from around the world with familiar songs both sacred and secular. As always, we will feature a guest vocalist. This year, we are pleased to have as our guest vocalist Ms. Amy Bearden. Currently, Amy teaches K-8 General Music in the McKinley Park neighborhood of Chicago. Amy is also on the staff of First United Methodist Church of Arlington Heights, IL as the director of the bell choir.

As is our tradition, we will close our performance with our traditional sing-along medley of Christmas carols led by our guest vocalist.

Selected pieces on the program include:

  • Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
  • Frosty the Snowman - Tuba Solo
  • The Christmas Song
  • Twas the Night Before Christmas - narration with music
