Coastal Communities Concert Band’s 20th annual holiday concert Dec. 7

Brass, wind, and percussion instruments will herald the holiday season with a special concert Sunday, Dec. 7, by the Coastal Communities Concert Band to benefit area seniors.

The award-winning band will donate all concert proceeds from its 20th annual Holiday Concert to Meals-on-Wheels of Greater San Diego.

Throughout its 20-year partnership with Meals-on-Wheels, the Sudler Award-winning Coastal Communities Concert Band has donated more than $185,000 through ticket sales and opportunity drawings from this annual holiday concert event.

This year’s concert will include old favorites, new holiday arrangements, and an annual tribute to our nation’s service men and women.

The band also features Carl and Mickey Janelli, who have been volunteers with Meals-on-Wheels for more than 20 years. Carl, a world-famous professional musician, has performed at Carnegie Hall, on Broadway, and with many famous big bands and crooners.

The concert will be at 2 p.m. at Carlsbad Community Church, 3175 Harding St., Carlsbad.

Ticket prices: $20 general admission; $15 for seniors (60+plus), children (12 and younger), students and military. Tickets can be purchased through Meals-on-Wheels by calling (800) 5-SENIOR, or 760-736-9900, or online at
