Welcome to the Hillcrest Concert Band web site!

Now celebrating 60 years of making music, the HILLCREST CONCERT BAND is planning a series of Christmas concerts entitled: ”A Christmas Toy Shop".

The theme of the concerts this year has been “FAVORITES” – of the band members, and of the audiences. One of the favorites of past Christmas concerts was the 2009 presentation of A Christmas Toy Shop. It is introduced by March of the Toys from Babes in Toyland. The audience will then enjoy the music of the dances by each of the toys in the Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky, and La Boutique Fantastique, a piece that was written by Rossini, then orchestrated by Respighi, and arranged for band by Leidzen. David Morse is the soloist on The Toy Trumpet, and the Hillcrest Saxophone Quartet is featured in Sax Serenade. The Hillcrest Concert Chorale will sing a cappella, then join with the band to present several more classic Christmas melodies. The concert concludes with the wish for a Happy New Year and the singing of Auld Lang Syne.

The HILLCREST CONCERT BAND will present four concerts in north-eastern Ohio: Tuesday, December 1 at 7:00PM at the McGregor Home - 14900 Private Drive in East Cleveland; Tuesday, December 8 at 7:30PM at the Mentor Senior Center – 8484 Munson Drive in Mentor; Sunday, December 13 at 3:00PM at Light of Hearts Villa – 283 Union Street in Bedford; Tuesday, December 15 at 7:30PM at the Breckenridge Cultural Arts Center 36851 Ridge Road, Willoughby.
