RCSJ to Provide Musical Cheer with Annual Holiday Concert

Concert Band

​Members of the RCSJ-Cumberland campus bands practice getting in tune for its upcoming annual holiday concert. ​​

As excitement builds for another festive holiday season, the Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ) Cumberland campus bands will continue their role in helping to uplift the community’s vibrations with their annual holiday campus concert. This merry program, which is free to the public, begins at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the Guaracini Performing Arts Center. 

This year’s holiday concert includes a repertoire of seasonal favorites which will be performed by the College’s Jazz Band and Wind Symphony. 

“The Rowan College of South Jersey–Cumberland campus bands are approaching their 41st performance season,” said Joseph Akinskas, adjunct professor, music education. “The holiday season concerts are always the highlight of every performance year.”

Concertgoers will feel a warm sense of nostalgia while listening to unforgettable holiday tunes such as “Feliz Navidad,” “Santa Baby,” “Mr. Grinch,” and “White Christmas,” performed by Jazz Band instrumentalists and vocalists. The Wind Symphony will wow the audience with their musicianship as they play favorites like “C’est Noel,” “A Mariah Carey Christmas,” and the perennial holiday favorite “A Christmas Festival,” by Leroy Anderson. 

The College’s Jazz Band and Wind Symphony will, once again, be taking their merry musical show on the road during the holiday season. “We appreciate the opportunity to participate in the annual Olde Fashioned Christmas on the Ave in Vineland to kick off the holiday season,” Akinskas, founding director of the RCSJ–Cumberland campus bands, said.

“We hope the community will join us at our Dec. 2 campus concert and at our annual ‘Shopping Concert’ at the Cumberland Mall on Wednesday evening, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. Happy Holidays!”
