The Troy University-Dothan community band kicked off the Christmas season early with their annual Christmas concert.
The band, which consists of Wiregrass musicians of all ages, play a variety of traditional , old English, and modern Christmas favorites.
Director James Holmes says music gets people in the mood for the season.
He says, "Music is everywhere, if you can imagine the world without music, how many times have you been walking at the mall during Christmas and heard jingle bells? It just kind of gets us in the mood, whether we realize it or not."
The band will perform Christmas favorites again, Dec. 6 at Wiregrass Commons Mall.
The performance will begin at 6 p.m.
