The Philadelphia Youth Orchestra presents a “Russian Christmas” with the student brass players of the BRAVO BRASS ensemble. This annual holiday concert takes place on Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at The Church of the Holy Trinity located at 1904 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA. Conducted by Paul Bryan, the Director of Bravo Brass who is the Dean of Faculty and Students of the Curtis Institute of Music, Bravo Brass is the all-brass ensemble of the highly regarded Philadelphia Youth Orchestra—one of the few ensembles of its type in the country.
The concert will include selections by famous Russian composers Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninov, Dmitri Shostakovich and Victor Ewald as well as English composer Benjamin Britten to encapsulate the holiday season.
Paul Bryan looks forward to this concert and said recently, “Presenting a ‘Russian Christmas’ is a challenging and exciting concert for our students. We look forward to performing this music in the beautiful Church of the Holy Trinity and setting a magnificent tone for the holiday season.”
