SHSband1The Schaumburg High School Music Department is gearing up for its series of holiday concerts to celebrate the season.

The music department will proudly present its annual series of Holiday Band Concerts on Dec. 16 and 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Schaumburg High School auditorium. Tickets are $2 and are open to the public.

The first night will feature the Concert and Symphonic Bands, and the Cadet Band and Wind Symphony will perform the second night. Both nights will also include a performance by Tuba Christmas.

The concerts will feature a variety of great composers such as Frank Ticheli and John Zdechlik, along with some holiday favorites.

During the holiday concerts, the Wind Symphony will debut their set for the Outback Bowl.
