Here is your invitation to join me for a special night of Christmas music by some of South Jersey's most talented local musicians, the South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble's Holiday Concert.

It's my pleasure to be the master of ceremonies for the Wind Ensemble's concert, It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, 7:30 pm Monday, Dec. 5 at Stockton's Performing Arts Center.

The South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble is a 65 member band composed of professional musicians, music teachers, and college graduates who have maintained high musical standards since playing in their college bands. The Wind Ensemble are very entertaining and their Christmas concert is one of their most popular of the year.

Christmas music favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "The Polar Express" and "Let There Be Peace of Earth" will be enhanced by singers and dancers, lights, video and special effects live on the Stockton PAC stage.

Tickets are $17 and usually sell out early for this concert. Get your tickets now from the Stockton PAC or by calling 609-652-9000.

Hope to see you for this wonderful night of Christmas music. Happy Holidays!
