The nonprofit Royal Oak Concert Band prepares to play holiday music at the Royal Oak Middle School Auditorium.
The performance is the group’s second gig in its 2021-22 season, and is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 12 at the college auditorium, 709 N. Washington Ave.
Led by Kevin R. Czarnik, the concert group is celebrating the season with a return from their annual holiday concert.
This year the group is collaborating with the PRISM Men’s Chorus, led by Darin DeWeese.
An ROCB press release said the upcoming concert will feature traditional music for Christmas, Hanukkah and “a festive song to get everyone in the holiday spirit.”
The December 12 concert will also be included by the Woodward Avenue Jazz Orchestra.
Ensemble of 20 musicians, the jazz orchestra performs a repertoire of music ranging from swing to modern jazz.
Tickets for the concert cost $ 10 for adults and $ 8 for seniors. Children 12 and under are admitted free. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the ROCB website at royaloakconcertband.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
After the holidays, the orchestra’s next concert is set for 3 p.m. on Sunday March 13 at the college.
Now in its 58th year, the Royal Oak Concert Band has performed in southern Oakland County since 1963.
Members of harmony orchestras come from all walks of life, from high school students and seniors to 70-year-old artists.
