Jenny Bintliff will sing Michael Brown’s “Grown Up Christmas List” and Naples’ own Flute Cocktail will put their holiday touch on the concert with a custom arrangement of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” by John Stein. “Westminster Carol”, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride”, Philip Sparke’s “Shalom”, and Paul Lavenders arrangement of “A Home Alone Christmas” are a few of the other selections that will enhance this year’s Holiday Celebration. This concert is sponsored by Bill Banfield.

With more than 20 great feature soloists and inventive programing the 2019 – 2020 concert season promises to impress with music that everyone will enjoy.
