The VSO Brass Quintet joins forces with Counterpoint, this year guest-conducted by Kevin Quigley, to ring in the holidays in style. Selections range from a brass arrangement of a Bach chorale and majestic Poulenc motets to popular tunes like “Sleigh Ride,” “Let It Snow,” and “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The program also includes a carol singalong, a brand-new student composition, and traditional favorites by Robert De Cormier. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on this seasonal treat—a perfect blend of brass, voices, and good cheer.
