NJS Symphonic Band holiday concert Saturday

The Nicholas J. Sinibaldi Symphonic Band will present a holiday concert this Saturday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church. The band will be conducted by Chris Gankowski, band director at the St. Marys Area High School. Anne Herzing, daughter of the late Nicholas J. Sinibaldi, noted that this is the first year that the family-oriented concert will be held in a church. "Sacred Heart, first of all, is one of the older churches [in the community]. Also, the fact is that my dad liked Sacred Heart. He always thought it was a very beautiful church," Herzing said. While the concert is being held at Sacred Heart this year, Herzing expressed the hope that it can be rotated between area churches in the future.
