Oak Lawn Band presents Reflections
Saturday, December 16 at 4 PM
The Oak Lawn Band will present “Reflections,” a holiday-themed concert that will highlight the variety of moods and feelings the season brings – on December 16 in the sanctuary of Oak Lawn United Methodist Church.
This family-friendly event will feature music from contemporary to traditional including excerpts from Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons,” Leroy Anderson’s “A Christmas Festival,” “The Eighth Candle” by Stephen Reisteter, and Glenn Rudolph’s work for brass, percussion and choir “The Dream Isaiah Saw,” which features the church’s pipe organ. Also featured is “Minor Alterations No. 2: Carols from the Dark Side” by Plano native David Lovrien.
“We’re focusing on how the holidays can affect our emotions — happy, sad, reverent, reflective, etc. — more than simply just playing carols, though we’ll have those too.” said Oak Lawn Band Interim Artistic Director Marc Dunbar. “I’m so honored to be conducting this group and hope our concertgoers can be as moved to hear the band as I am to present it.”
