Empire Brass: The Sounds of Christmas Comes to the Warner, 12/20

On Thursday, December 20 at 8pm, the Warner Theatre welcomes North America's finest brass quintet, Empire Brass presenting The Sounds of Christmas. This seasonal concert will feature Elisabeth von Trapp, granddaughter of the legendary Maria & Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired The Sound of Music.

The five musicians that perform as Empire Brass have all held leading positions with major American orchestras and perform over 100 concerts a year in cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington, London, Zurich and Tokyo. With their best-selling recordings on the Telarc label they have introduced an even larger audience worldwide to the excitement of brass music that ranges from . . . Bach and Handel to jazz and Broadway. They are equally at home in the majestically antiphonal works that Gabrieli composed for St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice and the exuberantly show stopping tunes that Richard Rodgers and Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote for Broadway.

Singing professionally since childhood, Elisabeth has enthralled audiences from European cathedrals to Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center.

With a voice that critics have called "hauntingly clear" (New York Times), Elisabeth, along with the Empire Brass, "...will send a thrill of pleasure through your nervous system" (Boston Globe).

Tickets for this concert are $20.50, $35.50, $45.50 and can be purchased by calling the Warner box office at 860-489-7180 or online at www.warnertheatre.org.
