The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will continue the First Horizon Foundation Instrumental Series with Holiday Brass on Friday, Dec. 18, and Saturday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 20, at 4 p.m. at Collegedale Commons.

The program will highlight the CSO Brass and Percussion ensembles on more than a dozen holiday favorites, including Joy to the World, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, and more.

"The CSO Brass and Percussion will be joining forces again to bring you all a spectacular concert that will surely get you into the spirit of the holidays,” said Ismael Sandoval, CSO assistant conductor. “From glorious fanfares, to richly orchestrated textures, you can expect to be transported to a magical place where you will enjoy the holiday songs that we all know and love. Bring your loved ones so that you all can experience the truly magnificent sounds of the CSO Brass and Percussion during the most wonderful time of the year."

Those who prefer to watch the concert from home can also purchase a recording access ticket for $10, allowing them to enjoy the show at their convenience for up to 30 days.

Tickets will not be sold at the venue and attendees will be required to wear masks, follow social distancing guidelines, and adhere to the CSO's COVID-19 related concert health and safety standards, which can be found at chattanoogasymphony.org/concert-health-safety.
