Chicago Brass Quintet to play at Pitt-Bradford, Dec. 2

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Chicago Brass Quintet will play a holiday concert at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford joined by the vocalists of Table for Five, which made its mark performing Christmas concerts in the Chicago area.

The concert, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Bromeley Family Theater, replaces the previously announced “American Idol Stars in Concert for the Holidays!” Tickets for the Chicago Brass and Table for Five concert are $24 to $28 for members of the public and $10 to $12 for all students.

“We are getting two stellar groups together for an unusually good holiday concert,” said Randy L. Mayes, director of arts programming. “Either group by itself would offer a strong concert. Together, this concert will be extraordinary.”

The program will include beloved traditional selections such as “Joy to the World” and “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” as well as selections from Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.

Table for Five will perform a capella versions of the “Coventry Carol,” “Carol of the Bells” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

The Chicago Brass Quintet was formed in 1964 to promote the appreciation and enjoyment of brass chamber music through performances, educational workshops, broadcasts, recording and commissioning new works.

Table for 5 has been featured with numerous Broadway productions as well as performing with symphony orchestras, clubs and cabarets.
