The second 2019 holiday event for members of the Sound Dunes (SDSE) was an ensemble performance by a group of SDSE Sax and Brass instrumentalists at the December 8th Dennis Village Holiday Stroll. Nine SDSE members braved a semi-mild winter afternoon from about 1pm to 2pm to perform Holiday Carols on the bandstand on the Dennis Village Green during the stroll. Members of the ensemble included: Corey Russo and Peter DeBakker playing Sax; and Brass participants Paul Chatelain, Dale Cotter, Mike Hays, Jim Stamboni, Tom Jahnke, Dan Feheley, and Mike Rodericks.
One highlight of this public performance was when a local troop of Girl Scouts joined the ensemble (see little kids with red Santa hats in second photo attached) to sing several Holiday Carols. The audience and the girls (and especially the girls’ parents) enjoyed the experience and they were actually looking forward to doing it again next year, if possible!
