Holiday Concert


Wednesday, December 6 • 7pm

This year’s concert should be an outstanding show. We are featuring music
from many more genres than usual including:

  • Rock
  • Funk
  • Classical
  • Children’s/Disney
  • Traditional

and more!

It should be a fun night for the whole
family, with minimal talking, and lots of fun music.

Audience members can expect a holiday concert like they have never seen us
perform before. You should plan to arrive early as there are already a
confirmed 800 guests! And, of course, don’t forget to bring a food item for
the DNG war on hunger!

I am looking forward to seeing you at the concert!
