About the Concert

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