The Camden Community Concert Band (CCCB) will feature harpist Kipper Edens Ackerman, left, during its Christmas concert on Sunday at 3 pm at Camden High School. Ackerman is pictured practicing with the CCCB. She is native of Sumter and is the founder and director of “The Sounds of Grace,” a non-profit whose mission is to bring peace and healing through music.

The Camden Community Concert Band (CCCB) will present its annual Christmas concert on Sunday at the Performing Arts Center at Camden High School. The show begins at 3 p.m. and admission is free.

The CCCB is under direction of founding conductor Pat Wylie. This concert season will be Wylie’s last as conductor. After more than 30 years as the band’s leader, Wylie will be stepping down.

"We are dedicating this season to Pat," Johnny Deal said. Deal is the CCCB’s business manager. "Pat is the reason the CCCB has been in our community for over 30 years," Deal added.

Long time composer Dick Goodwin has arranged a piece for the band and their guest harpist Kipper Ackerman. Goodwin has performed numerous times in Camden at the Fine Arts Center. His arrangement of "Christmas Flamenco" will feature Ackerman playing her harp along with the band.

The CCCB will also feature crowd favorites "Sleigh Ride" and "Christmas Recollections" along with other holiday favorites and a visit from Santa Claus.
