Event description

Description

The nation's longest-running brass ensemble, "Tarnished Brass", will play a special holiday concert on Sunday, Dec. 16, including a selection of seasonal music, as well as some folk tune settings to be performed with guest artist Jessica Peterson on Native American flute. The St. Paul's United Church of Christ sanctuary choir and organist will perform special pieces, and acclaimed local soprano Kristin Morant will sing a solo composed by Tarnished Brass.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
Program highlights will include several titles by composer Dr. Thomas Root. (Root was the original tubist with the Tarnished Brass and is the father of Kristi Morant.) Two significant pieces from the “Root Collection” will be "My Soul Magnifies the Lord" for choir and brass and "Nighteagle Suite" for brass and Native American flute. Some traditional Advent music completes the repertoire.

HISTORY
Members of Tarnished Brass have been performing together since 1967 in the University of Minnesota marching band program. Since they only perform a few times a year, this is a great opportunity to hear them back at home in Minnesota!
