The Principal Brass of the New York Philharmonic – Holiday Brass

principalbrassI’ve always been fond of brass quintets since my undergraduate days at Moravian College was as a music major. During those years, I played a lot of brass quintet music myself as a trumpet player. Last year I had the pleasure of attending the annual Holiday Brass performance by The Principal Brass of the New York Philharmonic. I had such a good time, I wanted to return again this year!

Again, the Quintet was accompanied by the Lee Musiker Trio. The concert consisted of lots of fun arrangements, including a solo number for each of the players. The guys in the Quintet and Trio clearly enjoyed bringing the audience into the festive spirit of the season.

What did I learn? I learned that The Principal Brass has a website, a Facebook page and a new CD. Check it out! These guys are terrific.
