2021 Holiday Concert Video

2021 Holiday Concert video title

With the relaxation of some COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, some of the fully vaccinated musicians of the Woodside Village Band were able to rehearse together with masking and social distancing observance. For the first time in two years, an in-person concert was presented in the Woodside Village Church on December 18, 2021. We hope that the video linked above will bring enjoyment to those who were unable to attend in person. (In the YouTube description, click on the SHOW MORE button to see the full program with links to the start of each composition.)

The members of the Woodside Village Band were interested in participating in a project that would have them play their instruments. Some hadn't played for two months since shelter in place and social distancing orders took effect. It was suggested that a virtual concert video should be tried. It was decided to use The Teddy Bear's Picnic by John W. Bratton/ Paul Yoder, arranger. The band has had a long connection with the composition. A major event happened some 18 years ago when our founding director, Richard Gordon, had the band play the piece during one of our evening rehearsals. He used his cell phone to call his daughter, who was in the hospital having delivered her daughter (Katie), to convey the band's performance.
