Illinois Brass Band to present 'Holiday Classics' family concert Dec. 21
The Illinois Brass Band, under the direction of Music Director Stephen Squires, presents their annual "Holiday Classics" family Christmas concert.
On Saturday, Dec. 21, the band will be returning for the sixth year to the sanctuary of Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, 307 Cedar Ave. in St. Charles. The concert will begin at 5 p.m.
This has become an annual holiday tradition for many families.

The performance will feature a newly commissioned sing along as adapted for brass band by Andrew Wainwright, artistic adviser to the Illinois Brass Band.
