Description

Let the trumpets sound! There is no more inspirational way to begin Christmas week than to give yourself the gift of music performed by the world celebrated Pittsburgh Symphony Brass in Foxburg’s beautiful Memorial Church of Our Father on Sunday, December 10 at 7:00 PM.

Foxburg’s beautiful neo-Gothic Memorial Church of Our Father, gloriously bedecked with poinsettias, will be the exquisite holiday setting for this perennial favorite. The intimate atmosphere and superb acoustics of this beautiful stone church will resound with stirring strains of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Brass Ensemble – some of the most superbly talented brass musicians in the world – right here in the beautiful Allegheny-Clarion River Valley for your holiday inspiration.

These world renowned brass musicians are led by Grammy Award winner and PSO Principal Trumpet, George Vosburgh who in 1987 won the Grammy for Best New Classical Artist. Internationally acclaimed for his virtuosity on the trumpet in recordings, concerts, and recitals, Vosburgh has appeared as a soloist in such locales as the Bonn Festival, Ravinia Festival, and the Curs International de Musica in Valencia, Spain. After his tenure as the youngest member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s world famous brass section under the late Sir George Solti, Vosburgh joined the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as Principal Trumpet in 1992.

Performing works from their three acclaimed Christmas CDs (available on Amazon), Pittsburgh Symphony Brass is led by Grammy award winner George Vosburgh. The group possesses a unique blend of virtuosity with brilliant sonority rarely achieved in brass music. Organized in 1994 and featuring some of the world’s finest orchestral brass musicians playing in chamber ensemble, the ensemble endeavors to stretch the limitations of performance and explore a wide range of musical expression rarely achieved in brass music.
