The Rusty Pipes, a Community Concert Band, has its Winter Concert Dec. 5 at 3 p.m. in the Hobart Middle School Auditorium. It is the bands first season under the direction of their new conductor, Sue Williams. Williams has co-directed the band for several years, but now has sole control of the baton. Retired from the Merrillville school system, Williams has spent many years involved with school bands throughout the region.
This years Winter Concert consists of music we may all identify.

Half of the program consists of Holiday favorites. A beautiful version of “Greensleves” and a traditional “Sleight Ride” will put you in the holiday mood. A fun piece entitled “Parade of the Bumbling Wooden Soldiers” is sure to get a giggle. Two favorites among the band members are well-known tunes “Bell Carol A La Big Band” and a “Canadian Brass Christmas.”
Rounding out the program is a variety of lighter pieces also enjoyable for all ages. A medley from “Shrek” and the Broadway blockbuster “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” get your toes tapping. Another piece you are sure to enjoy is an airy Norwegian March popular with concert bands across our country and Europe called “Valdres.” A classic concert piece “Poet and Peasant Overture” may not be recognized by its name but once you hear the music you will remember hearing it before.
The band would also like to introduce their new Web site, Now you can follow the band and stay up to date on their latest information, upcoming concerts and activities.
As always after the concert stay and enjoy a delicious snack and visit with the band members. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
The Band would like to thank the Hobart School Administration and Miss Peggy Kaiser, Middle School Band Director, for allowing them to rehearse and perform at the Middle School over the years.
The Hobart Middle School Auditorium is located at 36 E. Eighth Street in Hobart. Adult admission to the concert and refreshments is $5 per person, and students in 12th grade and under are free. Tickets are available at the door. New members are always welcome.
