Other Details:
The Lehman College & Community Band celebrates the season with “Holiday Cheer!” a concert featuring a mix of holiday selections and classics for wind band. This event, which is open to the public, will take place on Sunday, December 22, at 2 p.m. in the Lovinger Theatre.

Led by Professor Alan Hollander of the Music Department, the ensemble will perform a wide range of works, including perennial holiday favorites Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, another sleigh ride, “Troika” from the Lieutenant Kije Suite by Sergei Prokofiev, and a medley of traditional Hanukah tunes entitled Festive Sounds of Hanukah.

Also featured will be a slice of Americana: Norman Rockwell Suite by Hayato Hirose inspired by three of Rockwell’s famous paintings, the timeless Greensleeves arranged by prolific American composer Alfred Reed, and Norman Dello Joio’s Scenes from the Louvre, based on ancient airs.

Special guest narrator Dr. James Mahon, Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, will read Clement Moore’s classic poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas cleverly set to music by Jack Bullock. Rounding out the program will be a humorous medley by David Lovrien entitled Minor Alterations: Christmas Through the Looking Glass, a game of musical hide-and-seek for the audience, in which familiar Christmas carols are transposed from major to minor keys then disguised and layered to create something new and innovative.
