About the Concert

Pre-Christmas brass music belongs to the Advent season like the Advent wreath and gingerbread. Traditionally, it was brass players who blew Christ down to earth from church towers. The Advent concert of KultBlechDresden, our philharmonic brass ensemble, is only remotely reminiscent of this custom. But with trumpets, horns, trombones, euphonium, tuba and percussion, their concert nevertheless really gets the audience into the Christmas spirit!
