Community Band performs at G. Ray Bodley

The sounds of the holiday season will once again be heard at 7 p.m. Sunday Dec. 15 at the annual Fulton Community Band Christmas Concert in the G. Ray Bodley High School auditorium, said Steve Chirello, president of the Fulton Music Association.

The concert is free.

The Fulton Community Band will perform several new arrangements and old favorites including Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” “Sounds of Christmas Joy,” “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” “Great Songs of Christmas,” “The Hallelujah Chorus,” and more.

The band also will perform “A Christmas Auld Lang Syne” in remembrance of Jack Walsh, longtime city clerk in Fulton, and Muriel Allerton, former Fulton mayor.

Walsh died in 2012 and Allerton died this year.

The Roamin’ Catholic Choir, under the direction of Dolores Walrath, will sing in the concert and will feature “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Christmas in 3 Minutes” and more.

“The evening will end with a rousing Christmas carol sing-along with the band, the choir, the Hamer Sing-a-long group and the audience, Chirello said.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend, Chirello said. For more information, call 342-2294.
