Today’s news:

The North Shore Pops Concert Band will entertain area residents during a free performance featuring traditional holiday favorites at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish House at the New Utrecht Reformed Church, 18th Avenue between 83rd and 84th streets, December 13.

This is the third year the North Shore Pops has visited New Utrecht. The concert, with Maestro Eric R. Albinder conducting, is sponsored by Friends of Historic New Utrecht. Parking is available in the church lot and light refreshments will be served after the concert.

In addition to the holiday favorites, the North Shore Pops draws on an extensive repertoire of crowd-pleasing music, including popular songs, Broadway showtunes, patriotic marches, operetta and light classical pieces.

The Parish House, where the concert takes place, is noted for its excellent acoustics as well as for its history and famous architecture.

The holiday concert is one of many community events sponsored by the Friends historical organization each year. Most are educational in nature, providing for school children “living history lessons” on the earliest days of Brooklyn and the nation.
