'Peace on Earth' concert on Pearl Harbor Day

The Danville Community Band will present its seventh annual Christmas concert, "Peace on Earth," on Sunday, Dec. 7, with joyous Christmas music and a salute to those who lost their lives on the same day in 1941, when Pearl Harbor was attacked.

A special guest of honor will be Herb Jorgensen, 89, of Danville, who was a young seaman in the U.S. Navy at Pearl Harbor on that fateful day.

The band will perform Christmas and Hanukkah music, including traditional songs and guest vocalists.

"We are so proud of this band as we enter our eighth year together," said Conductor Larry Anderson. "The community has been so loyal in their attendance at our concerts."

He recommends getting to the holiday concert early to get good seats. The performance begins at 3 p.m., at the East Bay Fellowship, 2615 Camino Tassajara, next to the post office.

Another special visitor in a red suit might also make an appearance, organizers said.
