Event Description

The Shoreview Northern Lights Variety Band is celebrating 25 Years of Holiday Music! It will be an evening filled with a variety of fun, festive and majestic music with special guests the Minnesota Boychoir and organist Thomas Ferry. The concert features the premier performance of a symphonic band composition written to commemorate a first visit to Minnesota in April 2019. After experiencing the historic charm and beauty of the St. Croix River Valley, Kelijah Dunton, winner of the band's 2019 Composition Competition, composed "Stillwater" while on the airplane traveling back home to New York City. Kevin Mills, the band's Associate Music Director, was awarded a commission for the band's Silver Anniversary and will conduct the debut of his medley arrangement "Angels, Angels, and More Angels." Audience members are part of the concert too as they provide the voices for the "Christmas Pop Sing-A-Long." 

The Shoreview Northern Lights Variety Band (SNLVB) is under the musical direction of Dr. Michael Scott with Mr. Kevin Mills as Associate Music Director. The band is celebrating its 25th year of entertaining audiences throughout the Twin Cities region and has a membership of over 85 volunteer adult musicians. New members are welcome. Visit for more information.
