Coming Up at Saint Mark's

Curtis Brass Project Concert, December 19 at 7:30 p.m.
The Brass Project is a Philadelphia-based brass sextet formed by leading players from the Curtis Institute of Music. These “six superb Curtis brass players” (Philadelphia Inquirer) united around a shared set of multifaceted goals: to expand the repertoire for chamber brass, to record and distribute new works, and to engage with a wide community through outreach and educational programs. Their debut album, “Cityscaping,” releases Spring 2018 and celebrates some of the work composers have created for their ensemble. For this special Christmas concert, The Brass Project will perform holiday favorites from a wide variety of genres, all specifically arranged for their ensemble. Selections will include Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Handel's Messiah, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's popular arrangement of Carol of the Bells, and jazzy versions of many standard carols. The concert will feature a goodwill offering. All proceeds will go to Saint Mark's Saturday Soup Bowl.
