Holiday Brass and Tuba Fest

Good afternoon,

What a fantastic concert last night! I am beaming with pride. We took some time today to listen back to the recordings and watch the videos and are ready to hit the ground running towards our next concert and concepts that we plan on learning. I am thankful for Patrick Glory and his hard work to make our concerts available to our loved ones who cannot attend concerts in person.

All live streams will be broadcasted from our CHS Trojan Band Facebook/Youtube.

This Sunday there will be the first annual Holiday Brass and Tuba Fest. The owner of Gallery Row Coffee on the Square asked for some band directors in the area to assist him with this and I have become a part of this new tradition as a conductor. On Sunday there will be a concert at the Amp. in Carrollton behind the Square. The rehearsal will begin at 2PM and the concert will begin at 3. The University of West Georgia will have a Tuba and Euphonium Ensemble for the first part of the concert and then anyone who is a brass player, regardless of agewill come on stage and play through some simple Christmas carols. It is meant to be an event that is low pressure and full of some beautiful music for our community to hear.

If your child is interested in playing then please have them at the AMP at 2PM on Sunday the 10th. If you are interested in coming and listening to the music and supporting the performers then please be at the AMP a little before to hear the concert.

Performers will wear Christmas colors. Bring your instrument but stands and music will be provided on site.

Gallery Row will have hot chocolate for us to enjoy!

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope that our community can make this a wonderful tradition for Carrollton!
