Aimed at bringing members of the community together in celebration of the holiday season, GCCP will present a special hourlong concert featuring music for Brass Quintet. Since the 17thcentury, the brilliant sound of brass instruments has been associated with the holiday season. Orchestras that include the San Francisco Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Baltimore Symphony, and others present brass programs each holiday season to capacity audiences.

With this in mind, the program includes music by composers such as Giovanni Gabrieli (a 17thcentury Venetian composer considered the first great composer of brass ensemble music), J.S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and P.I. Tchaikovsky, as well as arrangements of popular holiday music. Audience members will be encouraged to sing along with to their holiday favorites. Please see Gold Coast Chamber Players website for details and to reserve your free ticket.
