Get into the Yuletide spirit with our very special Christmas Brass concert, featuring many festive season classics and a few surprises, all given the big, bold, brass treatment.

There will be plenty of opportunities to sing along, with traditional carols from around the world, from Little Drummer Boy and New Zealand’s Te Harinui to Here Comes Santa Claus and Jingle Bells.

The diverse programme includes Victor Herbert’s ‘March of the Toys’ from Babes in Toyland, Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium, Mel Torme’s The Christmas Song, Felix Bernard’s Winter Wonderland and Big Band interpretations of carols including Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

Christmas Brass will be conducted by Brian Buerkle, who is also an accomplished trumpeter, conductor and arranger working with brass ensembles, vocal choirs and orchestras around the world.
