Mansfield Brass Quintet To Go Caroling In Lansdowne – Their Twenty-First Year!
The Mansfield Brass Quintet will be playing Christmas Carols in the Library of the 20th Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Ave, Lansdowne, PA on Saturday, December 21, 2019, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We’ve moved indoors to continue this tradition in a location that will guarantee the event happens no matter what the weather. In the past, we strolled the Gladstone Manor section of Lansdowne with its updated very picturesque turn-of-the-century style street lamps with a newer, brighter, and more energy-efficient style. The Mansfield Brass, so named from the street that it’s leader Paul Del Rossi lives on, will be playing Christmas Carols at the 20th Century Club just as we did under these beautiful street lamps. Paul plays trumpet in the quintet and has been providing the neighborhood with Christmas Carols the Saturday prior to Christmas day for the last twenty years. In fact, the Mansfield Brass was born twenty years ago performing this unique traditional Brass Choir Christmas event. This year is going to be terrific as it will feature the full 5-piece brass group instead of the 3-piece group of its early years. The Mansfield Brass will include Carolers again this year, for the eleventh year in a row, to accompany them and help celebrate their twenty-first year.
The original Salvation Army arrangements of the classic Christmas Carols will be used for everyone’s enjoyment. These arrangements are truly unique and have the most unusual harmony. They are rarely heard at Christmas time with the full instrumentation of the Brass Quintet for which they were written. Many new arrangements of more popular and contemporary carols have been added to the Christmas Carol book. Tunes like Snowmiser, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause, Jingle Bell Rock, Santa Baby, and many more! There will be no charge for the event but you are welcome to bring a dish to share.
