The skilled Salt River Brass ensemble has engaged ears and ear trumpets with upbeat jazz standards, toe-tapping marches, and more for 22 years. The band’s Holiday Pops concert tradition unwraps an aural treasure chest of seasonal tunes backed by virtuosic horns, percussion, and vocal cords. The full-band rendition of “Jingle Bells” reverberates with New Orleans–inspired song stylings, and vocalist Melissa Spevacek will join the audience in honeyed holiday melodies in the “Carol Sing Along” without dirtying doormats.
