Auburn ready to blow its own trumpet

December 3, 2013 by  

An annual Auburn tradition, the Red, White, and Blue Holiday Concert will be held this weekend. Tickets for the concert have been available since November 1 and are free. There is a limit of six tickets per family for the event, which will be held at the Auburn Performing Arts Center (APAC).

The concert is conducted by the 133rd Army Band; members belong to the Washington National Guard and hold concerts across the state. This Sunday, their repertoire will include both holiday and patriotic numbers. Tickets are available at the Arts & Recreation Administration Building at 910 9th Street, SE, from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm up until this Friday, and Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The concert takes place at the APAC at 206 E Street NE. This event is quickly becoming a holiday tradition for families. Tickets are usually available one hour prior to a performance at the theater, but this event typically sells out, so purchase of tickets before the day of the event is recommended. It kicks off at 2:00 pm on December 8.

Several other musical events are being held in Auburn over the holidays. With the help of locals printing services, posters or flyers generally provide information regarding events. Shows include ‘AveKids: The Not It’s Rockin Holiday’ on Dec. 7; the Dec 13 – 14 showing of ‘An Inspirational Christmas with Elvis’, and Christmas with the ‘Gothard Sisters’ on Dec. 15. With the exception of the Red, White and Blue Concert, the events listed will take place at the Auburn Avenue Theater.
