Notes and Editorial Reviews

The top brass quintet in the world recruits their own kids to help create a unique Christmas pageant. Together they weave a tapestry of visual elements through 15 segments, each built around a particular Christmas carol. The Brass are costumed, according to the dictate of the kids, as musical wind-up toys, angels, the Three Kings, a Christmas tree and Santa Claus. What results is a festive and spontaneous "free for all" where the kids run the show and where the Brass playfully indulge in their own experiment.
