BandTogether Holiday Concert

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

This year marks BandTogether's twentieth season as the city's premiere LGBT concert band. In that time the group has grown from a handful of friends gathered together to form a small marching band for the Pride Parade to a more than 100-member strong powerhouse. BandTogether's repertoire includes pop standards, modern symphonic works and, at this time of year, holiday music. You can bet you'll hear a sleigh-full of that last genre at BandTogether's seasonal show, In the Christmas Mood. Expect music from TV Christmas specials, carols and a few surprises. In the Christmas Mood starts at 8 p.m. tonight at the 560 Music Center (560 Trinity Avenue, University City; www.bandtogetherstl.com). Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated.
