The Arlington Heights Community Concert Band, in partnership with District 214 Community Education, will perform their holiday concert at 3:00 PM Sunday, December 18, 2022 in the theater of Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goubert Road, Arlington Heights.

Under the direction of Artistic Director and Conductor Pietro Pisello, the concert will feature music from holiday movies. Selections include music from "The Polar Express," "A Home Alone Christmas," and "Christmas Vacation" from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It wouldn't feel like the season without including music from "A Charlie Brown Christmas." There's something for everyone! Be ready for some surprises too!


Admission is free, but the band does accept donations to offset the cost of music and production. We do ask that you reserve tickets to help us anticipate audience attendance. This concert is typically a full house. To reserve tickets, please email or visit Remaining tickets, if any, will be available at the door.

The Arlington Heights Community Concert Band is our community's treasure trove of musical exceptionality unique to our area. This dedicated ensemble of musicians has been culturally enriching our community for more than 40 years. Most members are not professional musicians and come to rehearsals after their regular work hours to prepare for the next performance. They play for the love of music and for the pleasure of performing beautiful music for their community.
