BRATTLEBORO >> The Brattleboro American Legion Concert Band's 26th annual Christmas Concert will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 16 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Linden Street American Legion. This is a free concert open to the general public.

This year's performance features well known Christmas music presented in a wide range of musical styles. From a traditional setting of "Greensleeves" (probably the second oldest piece of secular music in our Western culture) to a contemporary jazzed up version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", the audience is sure find the variety of selections entertaining. And as always, the audience will be called upon to join in an old fashioned Christmas sing-a-long.
