The annual Christmas Dessert Concert by the Lakeshore Concert
Band took place at Summerlea at 7:30 PM Sunday 11 December 2011.|
For this event the band members prepare home made desserts to be consumed by the concert audience while enjoying the Christmas music.
The photos are pickable to see a larger version.
|This being a dessert concert, it seems appropriate to show the desserts in St. Andrew's hall before they are attacked by the hungry hordes.|
|The awaiting crowd is invited to partake of dessert by the band announcer.|
|And partake they do!|
As folks filled their faces, the band played many familiar
Christmas tunes, some with "swinging" arrangements.|
The band was located on the stage, making it difficult to find a place from which to snap them.
This one was taken from a somewhat precarious perch on the edge of the stage stairway.
No others were attempted.
Songbird Leslie Field (well known to Summerlea folk) sang|
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, much to our delight.
