Navy Band Northwest will present a free holiday concert for the community on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 3 p.m. in the Oak Harbor High School’s Student Union building.

This year’s event, “Home for the Holidays,” is sure to be a heartwarming musical evening for the entire family.

Navy Band Northwest is under the direction of Lt. jg. Robert J. Coats and has performed for over 480 engagements each year throughout the Pacific Northwest Region. The 35 musicians perform in various units, including the Ceremonial and Parade Band, Show Band, Popular Music Group, Brass Band, Brass Quintet, and Jazz Combo, and have an excellent reputation for quality musical performances.

A U.S. Marine Corps representative from NAS Whidbey Island’s Marine Aviation Training Support Group 53 will be standing by to accept donations for Toys for Tots. And there will be a special appearance from Santa Claus.

Navy Band Northwest is under the operational command of Rear Adm. Douglass T. Biesel, Commander Navy Region Northwest.

The street address for the high school is 1 Wildcat Way, Oak Harbor, with access off Heller Road.
