The Emporia Municipal Band held its annual Christmas Concert at the Granada Theatre on Sunday afternoon.

The halls of the Granada Theatre were filled with the sounds of Christmas tidings and joy. A rather large crowd got to enjoy the classic music and holiday atmosphere to fully embrace in the Christmas cheer.

The concert began with the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner, not so much a Christmas tune, but important to play nonetheless. Following this were several classical themes of the holidays like Jingle Bells Forever, Sleigh Ride, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and much more.

The end of 2019 marks the beginning of the Emporia Municipal Band's 85th year of blessing the community with the sounds of big band music. Keep up with the activities and showings of the Emporia Municipal Band by following them on Facebook.
