It’s December again, time for the band to join with the Cary Senior Center in our ninth annual musical celebration of the holiday season, Winterfest ’17. As requested, we’ll continue to have the very popular carol sing-along. (Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite carols.) We will again feature a few smaller ensembles of band members bringing you holiday favorites. There'll be music to celebrate your favorite holiday festivities - Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, maybe New Years, and of course, a Sleigh Ride or two. Come enjoy all your favorite holiday melodies at Winterfest ‘17.

The Greatest Show on Earth may have stopped its trains and folded its tents for the last time, but the world of the circus is still with us – and at the time it used to show up in our area each year. Remember the Grand Entrance parade with Thunder and Blazes, the seal act with Walking Frog, the aerialists flying above to The Crimson Pedal, the big cats in The Big Cage, the Grand Finale with Barnum & Bailey's Favorite, and many more in the three rings in between. For kids of all ages, come one, come all and enjoy the grand spectacle as we answer the question, do you Remember the Circus?

Friday the 13th

Friday, April 13, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Do you suffer from triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13) or worse, yet, paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th)? If so, THIS is the concert for you! We celebrate the number 13 and specifically this particular April Friday the 13th – and play music that absolutely demonstrates that such phobias may be well founded – or not. Who can resist Wooster’s Black Cat Rag or Missaud’s The Salem Witches (13 witches in a coven). We’ll include Cujus Animam from the Stabat Mater by Rossini (who died on a Friday the 13th), Wagner’s Good Friday Music (from Parsifal), and so much more – some quite lucky, with Silly Prizes, too. Challenge your phobias and join us as we luckily, musically investigate Friday the 13th.
