Christchurch’s iconic Woolston Brass Family; Woolston Junior Band, Woolston Concert Brass and Woolston Brass will showcase their musical talent and Christmas spirit this Sunday 8 December, 2.00pm at James Hay Theatre.

Woolston Brass is celebrating 128 years and has maintained a playing strength of over thirty musicians, with members drawn from all walks of like brought together by a creative talent for making music. Woolston Brass will perform two of Leroy Anderson’s Christmas works; Sleigh Ride and Christmas Festival, and Principal Trombonist Luke Christiansen will feature as a soloist performing When a Child is Born.

Woolston Brass takes great pride in its pioneering Academy; Woolston Junior Band will perform a Calypso styled Carol Medley and Woolston Concert Brass will perform Christmas Triptych – a Christmas cracker filled with favourites such as Westminster Carol; Joy to the World; Silent Night; Coventry Carol; and Good King Wenceslas.

The final number Snoopy’s Christmas will combine members from all three bands offering something truly unique, the joy of playing and sharing music together at any age.

A concert the whole family of any age will enjoy. Join Woolston Brass and their Academy for an afternoon of musical Christmas wonder and be inspired by their magical sounds this Christmas time.
