Program Notes

Featuring music celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Ramadan, A World Holiday Celebration is a unique medley for the concert band. Programmable in any educational setting, the arrangement features melody and ethnic percussion from multiple cultures celebrating the holiday season. Beginning with an introduction based on We Wish You A Merry Christmas, the arrangement continues with a setting of Oh Hanukkah featuring the saxophones. Sounds of Ramadan follows representing cultures of the middle east. An African percussion ensemble serves as the accompaniment for Kwanzaa, a chant featuring the seven principles of the holiday celebration. The winds return with We Wish You A Merry Christmas as the entire percussion section continues to a very exciting finish. This is the perfect ending for your holiday concert as your ensemble brings together the entire community in celebration.
