Free Concert! Brass Quintet and Pipe Organ

January 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We were able to reschedule! This concert was originally scheduled on December 1, but was canceled due to a snow storm that day. So rather than start your holiday season off, conclude it with us at this moving, holiday classic performance featuring the iconic South Church pipe organ, trumpets, french horn, trombone and tuba.

Also meet our new Music Director and Conductor, Toshiyuki Shimada!

Tickets are NOT required but we ask that you do Register so we can get a count on the approximate number attending.
