Jingle bells, jingle bells! It’s almost time to let the joyous music of the holiday season lift your hearts and souls as the Stuart Community Concert Band presents their annual holiday concerts at the Blake Library.

The band’s festive holiday concerts at the Blake Library are attended by hundreds of people every year. Because of the popularity of this traditional community event, there will be two performances at the Blake Library on Saturday, Dec. 15 – one starting at 11 a.m. and the other at 2 p.m. This year’s theme is “Home For the Holidays.”

    The holiday concerts at the Blake Library are free and open to the public, but you need to have tickets in hand. Free tickets for the performances are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Blake Library, located at 2351 S.E. Monterey Road, Stuart.

  “Home For The Holidays” will feature a broad collection of pieces, including The Christmas Song, Sleigh Ride, A Christmas Spectacular, Hanukkah Festival of Lights,  ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, Russian Christmas Music, You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, and A Christmas Festival.

The holiday concerts at the Blake Library have become a very popular tradition in our community over the years. In addition to the band’s holiday music, the Palm City Cookie Ladies will provide a colorful assortment of more than one thousand delicious cookies for Blake Library concert attendees. This wonderful group of volunteer ladies has been baking cookies and serving refreshments and decorating the stage for the band’s holiday performances since 2004.

The non-profit Stuart Community Concert Band is multigenerational group under the direction of conductor Jim LeBon. The band consists of  volunteer  musicians from all walks of life and of all age groups, ranging from middle school music students to one musician who recently turned 91 years young.

They play for the love of music. .
