MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. — The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band will hold its free annual Christmas concert at the Cherry Point Theater Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.

The band’s performance is open to residents of Cherry Point and the local community. The gates will open to the public at 5 p.m. for patrons with or without an air station decal. The air station will have special event signs posted to direct attendees to the theater.

“Christmas is obviously a special occasion. To get the community and the families of the Marines and Sailors together – it’s a good time,” said Chief Warrant Officer 4 Robert A. Szabo, director of the band.

“Our goal is for people to not think of this year’s concert as a typical band performance. We are adding vocals, bells and a couple of other surprises that I don’t want to spoil.”

The band will perform classic Christmas songs, and patrons can expect exciting twists to their favorite holiday tunes.

“This is my first time playing in the Christmas concert here and I’m really excited about it,” said Sgt. Sarah S. Jennings, 24, a flutist for the band. “I’m a Christmas enthusiast and I’m really looking forward to this year’s concert. We’ve been working hard, and I think we’re going to have a great performance.”

There will also be a Toys for Tots donation box located in the theater lobby for anyone who wishes to donate.
