Trail Band returns to Canby
The Canby High School Band presents the 23rd annual production of "Christmas with The Trail Band" at Richard R. Brown Fine Arts Center on Friday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. The Trail Band is an 8-piece ensemble that creates a blend of brass and string arrangements and also features five vocalists. The CHS band and director Nick Luchterhand are producing the concert, which will be a celebration of holiday music and storytelling.
Marv and Rindy Ross have been producing these shows for 24 years to raise money for a variety of causes including Friends of the Children, the Forest Grove Education Foundation, Hood River Schools Foundation and many others.
Rindy and Marv were fortunate enough in the '80s to have experienced platinum success with their band, Quarterflash (Harden My Heart), and these shows are part of the mission of the company, Ross Productions, to give back to the community and provide a holiday show for all ages.
The Trail Band was originally formed at the request of the State of Oregon to create a show about the Oregon Trail for the sesquicentennial back in 1993. The band played hundreds of shows in schools, pageants, and summer concert series. In 1994 the band expanded its production "wings" and created the holiday show. The band plays more than 25 instruments during the show and the songs range from classical to Celtic to country and everything in between with styles ranging from jazz to boogie boogie to 16 century madrigals.
