Classical Christmas Concerts
with the Arcadia Brass Quintet

Every year, the Arcadia Brass Quintet prepares an exciting new concert program for the Christmas Season.  We bring our hour-long, polished performance to communities throughout the New York City area - Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Rockland, Westchester & Nassau counties.  Audiences love these performances; we've been told "it's like going to Lincoln Center, but it's right around the corner!"  And that sums up our approach to our holiday concerts - we bring high quality music out of the concert halls and into the neighborhoods.

Arcadia Brass makes things easy for the churches & other venues that host our concerts.  We charge a reasonable flat fee, with no hidden expenses or added charges.  We do all the music prep and rehearsing, and present the entire program ourselves.  We do not require an organist or choir to perform with us.  The hosting church/venue provides publicity, getting the word out to the community, to ensure a good audience.  Some churches choose to sell tickets, others take up a free-will offering, and some provide the concert free of charge as a gift to their community.  Some venues also host a short dessert reception afterwards so people can enjoy some Christmas cheer together and meet the performers.

The concert itself includes a variety of music - inventive arrangements of sacred Christmas Carols from all over the world, as well as a selection of baroque, classical, romantic and modern art music for brass, and a secular carol or two as well.  At key points in the program, the performers talk with the audience, helping to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the music. We often include a couple sing-along carols, too.
