Dana Getka said she got a little nervous before playing a clarinet solo during the all-county band show Saturday night at North Hagerstown High School. As second chair in the All Washington County High School Concert Band, the 14-year-old Boonsboro High School freshman said she never really played a lot of solos. But when the first chair got knocked out earlier this week with a wrist injury, Getka said she was bumped into the spotlight. “It's my first solo in front of an audience,” Getka said.

HAGERSTOWN -- Sunday's performance by the Hagerstown Municipal Band was an extension of the Independence Day celebration, but it also took some attendees back in time. The band's annual July Fourth concert at the Peter Buys Band Shell in City Park Sunday night featured patriotic songs, including military marches, to get everyone in the holiday mood. Some of the people in attendance said the show was like living in the 1950s. "It's like being in a movie setting," said one woman in attendance.

The 2008 All-County Middle and High School Band and Jazz Ensemble Concert has been rescheduled for Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. at North Hagerstown High School, according to a Washington County Public Schools press release. The change was made because of Friday's school closing, which forced the cancellation of a full day of rehearsal for the participants, according to the release. Rehearsal has been rescheduled for Friday, according to the release. The concert will feature the All-County Middle School Band under the direction of guest conductor Kurt Nigh, the All-County Senior High School Band directed by guest conductor Lee Stevens, and the All-County Senior High School Jazz Ensemble directed by guest conductor Matt Gallagher.

There are a few things you can usually count on at the Williamsport Community Band's annual Christmas concert. The band will perform “The Night Before Christmas” while the poem is read to children, Santa will drop by and hand out toys donated through the Marine Corps League's Toys for Tots program and Nelson Deal will serve as announcer for the program. Deal, 81, said he's missed a few of the band's concerts due to his health and, one day, there will be a younger announcer, but he enjoys the role.

Of all the ways to usher in the holiday season, music ranks near the top. A visit from Santa Claus is a close second, and the reading of “The Night Before Christmas” isn't far behind. So, when you have all three on the same stage, you've hit the holly jolly jackpot. It will be an afternoon of family entertainment when the Hagerstown Municipal Band presents its annual Christmas show at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at The Capitol Theatre in downtown Chambersburg, Pa. This is the third year the band has presented a holiday program at the historic theatre, said director Lynn Lerew.
