Vancouver’s Rainbow Concert Band travels abroad for their annual holiday concert with December Destinations: The Great Christmas Escape.
Featuring music from around the globe including Puerto Rico, Scotland, Spain, England, Mexico and even Canada, the Rainbow Concert Band welcomes special guest Bill Monroe as they take you on a musical journey where the fasten seat-belt sign is turned off and where you don’t need to spend time packing.
The final performance of the year for the band who have been making music since it was formed in 1990, the holiday concert will also include silent auction so you can get a head start on your Christmas shopping, a 50/50 draw, and delicious refreshments.
The Rainbow Concert Band is the first and still the only one of its kind in Canada providing an outlet for LGBTQ musicians in a safe and supportive environment. The Band is always on the look-out for new members and no audition is required and welcomes instrumentalists of all ages and abilities.
Saturday, November 30, 2013 at Vancouver Community College, 1155 East Broadway, Vancouver. Tickets are $15 at the door or $10 in advance at Little Sisters or Sophie’s Pet Palace or online at Brown Paper Tickets. Visit http://rainbowband.ca for more information.
