From glittering fanfares to gentle carols, nothing captures the spirit of the festive season like the warm sound of a brass ensemble at Christmas.

And with sleighs, snow and a multitude of presents fast approaching, members of the Orchestra’s brass section present their own gift: a specially-chosen selection of concert favourites and Christmas classics. Look out for all your favourites in their medley of carols in Festive Cheer and even dream of far-off warmer days in the sun with Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess Suite, featuring the timeless classic Summertime.

So join our brass section for an evening of joy, excitement, and enough tunes to leave you humming all the way to Christmas Day.
