Woodwind trio among special guests for tonight’s band concert

A woodwind trio will be among several special guests featured at the Williams Lake Community Band Concert tonight at city hall.

The woodwind trio of Christine Constable on flute, Michael Butterfield on clarinet and Rocco Catalano on bass clarinet will be among the special guests featured at the Williams Lake Community Band Concert tonight.

They will be playing some traditional European carols.

The Cariboo Gold Dance Band will also be joining the concert this year.

This is a 17-piece band that plays in the Glenn Miller style.

Filling out the evening will be Rick Matthews on guitar and harmonica. He is formerly of the bands Howling Wolves and Hot Buttered Blues bands. Joining him will be vocalist Suzanne Butterfield of My Wife’s Quartet, and vocalist Harry Jennings, who is Williams Lake’s favourite “Elvis” tribute artist.

Come prepared to enjoy the music and sing along with some traditional Christmas carols.

The concert is tonight, Friday, Dec. 6 in the city council chambers and is held annually to help replenish the food bank and lend good cheer to the Christmas season.

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is by donation, either monetary or non-perishable food items. All proceeds will go to the local food bank.
