AUBURN – The Auburn Community Band, under the direction of Milt Simon, will present its 25th annual holiday concert on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Olin Arts Center, Bates College. The 75-minute performance will begin at 7 p.m.

The 46-member band is comprised of volunteer musicians from 15 central and southern Maine communities, who range in age from 14 to 81. They will perform traditional and contemporary holiday favorites, including a medley of songs celebrating the Jewish holiday of Chanukah.

In lieu of admission, those attending will have the opportunity to drop a donation into the Salvation Army Kettle, which will be located in the lobby. All money donated that evening will be used to help local area residents in need.
