The joyous sounds of the Washington Symphonic Brass herald in the holidays with their festive annual concert of international seasonal favorites. In fact, this area tradition's become so popular that the WSB decided to release a version of the show on CD -- though there's nothing like hearing those horns live. Home for the Holidays celebrates Christmas music from around the world, with carols and songs from Norway, France, Germany, Russia, Poland and even an Appalachian traditional from the U.S. This acclaimed area ensemble features the region's finest players on tuba, percussion, horns, trumpets and low brass, which makes for a stirring symphonic performance.
