The Sun City Concert Band will perform its annual Christmas concert 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15 at the Sundial Recreation Center, 14801 N. 103rd Ave.

The concert’s theme is “Our Christmas List.” Directors Dale Gleason and Charles Musgrave have chosen holiday tunes, including compositions like “Boughs of Holly,” “Canadian Brass Christmas” and “Christmas Flourish.”

Dan Reed, on trumpet, and Jane Higgs, vocalist, will be featured as soloists.

Sun City’s own Bryan Altherr will be tuba soloist with the band. He will be performing “Bass in the Ballroom” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”  Mr. Altherr received his musical degree at Grand Canyon University, and studied extensively with David Pack of the Phoenix Symphony as with other tuba instructors throughout the United States. He has performed with the rodeo band in Prescott, Red Mountain Brass Quintet, Salt River Brass, and the Phoenix Symphony. He currently performs with the Rhythm Ramblers, Arizona Swing Kings, Desert Brass and Sun Cities Orchestra.  He and his wife Lynn play German dance music with Das Polkameisters.

The concert is free.
