City Of Waterford Brass is getting into the Christmas spirit at rehearsals now in preparation for a very busy schedule of festive performances.
The season begins on Thursday 8 Dec at 10am in Faithlegg House Hotel when the band will welcome Santa to the Emergency Services Special Needs Party – titled the Santa 61 Club.
Sunday 11 Dec in the afternoon will see the band take part in Waterford Winter Wonderbands in the city centre along with the De La Salle Scouts Pipe Band and the HFC Brass Band from New Ross.
Next up will be the Waterpark National School Carol Concert in St Johns Church on Tues 13 Dec at 7pm, followed on the Thursday morning at 12pm with a very special performance in the Killean Resource Centre, Kilbarry.
The band continue their fine tradition of taking part in the Civic Carol Service in Christchurch Cathedral on Sunday 18 Dec at 4pm.
Tuesday 20 December will, as always, be a celebration of all that is good about Christmas, when the band take part in the beautiful service in St Andrews Church, Dunmore East, at 8pm.
The final event before the members break out the well-earned mince pies will be the Stephen Street School Carol Service in the Cathedral on Wednesday 21st at 11.30am.
Most of these events are open to the public and free so please come along and enjoy the festivities.
The band wish to acknowledge the support afforded to them by Waterford City and County Council and would like to wish all their friends and supporters a very Happy Christmas and a musical New Year.
