Saturday, Dec. 11, 2 p.m.: Cville Band Sax
Quartet Entertaining, uplifting and inspiring since 1922, the Charlottesville Band has filled the air near and far with symphonic music. Formerly known as The Municipal Band of Charlottesville, it is one of the oldest continuously operating amateur community bands in the United States, bringing talented community members together through a love of music. The Band has seven small group ensembles that give dozens of performances each year, from pop-up concerts in public parks to tuxedo-clad recitals at the Paramount Theater. Together, we volunteer over 14,000 hours per year to make excellent music for our community.
Saturday, Dec. 18, 2 p.m.: Cville Band Brass Ensemble
Holiday fanfare and merry making! Concerts are presented by Friends of Downtown Cville, The Bridge PAI, and the Cville Downtown Business Association.
