LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Angelina College hosts their Annual Christmas Extravaganza Concert at Temple Theater Sunday afternoon.

The Angelina College Chorale, the Lufkin Community Band, and the Small Chamber Instrument Group of Angelina College performed three acts. The community band is an amateur band, founded in 1999, and made up of over 40 people across East Texas.

Sunday's concert provided an early taste of Christmas, as the groups played and sang traditional holiday songs.

"Christmas is a great time of year. There's wonderful music for Christmas. People love Christmas music. We like to play Christmas music, and it's just part of our giving back to the community," said Lufkin Community Band Director, David Smith.

Smith says they're always looking for new members to join the band. To become involved, just come out to a rehearsal, every Tuesday at Angelina College, from 7 p.m. To 8:30 p.m.
