The Valley Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce its first live concert in more than 10 months. On Wednesday, December 16 at 7:30 pm, the VSO Holiday Brass will perform the A Touch of Frost Chamber Concert, a program of seasonal favorites in the beautiful San Juan Basilica. Seating is extremely limited and tickets may be purchased in advance only. This concert will enforce all health and safety protocols and social distance will be maintained at all times.
This 40-minute concert of classic and jazzy holiday favorites will feature Sleigh Ride, Feliz Navidad, Carol of the Bells, Joy to the World and more. The Holiday Brass Quintet consists of Jared Broussard, first trumpet; Bryan Morrell, second trumpet; Barbara Keller, French horn; Benjamin Coy, trombone, and Scott Roeder, tuba. They are joined by percussionist Jorge Peña for the concert.
“We are delighted to be in a place where we can perform live with all public health protocols in place,” said Katy Coy, VSO Executive Director. “Now friends and family can enjoy holiday music from the VSO in two ways: online or in person. We hope everyone will plan to join us in whatever way is right for them, and we’re immensely grateful for the support this year that is making it possible for us to go on.”
The VSO will also premiere an online A Touch of Frost holiday concert on December 18, and it will be rebroadcast on KRGV Channel 5 on December 20. The online concert features the VSO Holiday Brass and Delaine Leonard, VSO Harpist.
