Burning River Brass’s 12 members delight listeners with original works and updated arrangements of classic pieces performed on trumpets, tubas, trombones, and percussion. Since forming more than 15 years ago, the highly reviewed collective, like a sousaphone-powered hot air balloon, has tickled eardrums for audiences around the globe. The ensemble’s Holiday Festival set will feature a repertoire of classic holiday tunes, such as “Jingle Bells” and “The Little Drummer Boy,” as well as a smattering of Rumanian Christmas carols and three songs from The Nutcracker. The evening concludes with a sampling of music from holiday classics such as Frosty the Snowman, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Die Hard with an Ornament.
Neoclassical, French Nouveau, and Egyptian Revival architecture swathe audiences inside the elegant Severance Hall, the Cleveland Orchestra’s historic headquarters. Originally opened in 1931, the venue now boasts extensive renovations that helped restore its original detailing, maintain its top-notch acoustics, and bring ghosts of tuning forks past back to life. Up to 1,844 patrons can fit into the multitiered performance space, whereas preperformance dinners at the onsite restaurant (not included with today’s Groupon) keep stomachs from chiming in with unwanted accompaniment.
