Gifts of Art presents Sounds of the Season
by the Dodworth Holiday Brass Ensemble
The Dodworth Holiday Brass Ensemble is a brass octet with a male vocalist comprised of members of the celebrated Dodworth Saxhorn Band, which performed at the White House, in Washington DC. They use original brass saxhorns dating from 1840-1880 to play popular, religious, secular and ethnic (Polish, French, German and Norwegian) Christmas and holiday music. The audience is encouraged to join in singing and listening to a variety of seasonal favorites such as: "O' Christmas Tree", "Jingle Bells", "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing", "Jolly Old St. Nicholas" and "Angels We Have Heard on High".
