CONCERT 2 — A FAMILY HOLIDAY WITH FESTIVE BRASS
Date: Saturday, December 9, 2017 – 2:00 p.m.
Venue: Dave Dunnet Community Theatre at Oak Bay High School
For almost twenty years, the Festive Brass have been delighting crowds at The Butchart Gardens in Victoria during the Christmas season. Comprised of Stevan Paranosic (trumpet), Bruce Hurn (trumpet), Nick La Riviere (trombone) and Robert Fraser (bass trombone), the Festive Brass display top-notch musicianship, quirky arrangements of well-loved holiday classics, and cheeky humour.
The Civic Orchestra is delighted to be joining the Festive Brass to bring you a performance that is guaranteed to leave you filled with holiday cheer. Whether you identify with Santa Claus, or if the Grinch is more your style, this concert has something for you! Be prepared to lend your voice to some carol singing, hear some sublime music inspired by the season, and laugh out loud at the comedic skills of four of Vancouver Island's silliest musicians.
