A fanfare, typically played on brass instruments, announces that someone or something important is coming. The Woodstock Choralaires, accompanied by a brass ensemble, will herald the 2018 Christmas season with “A Christmas Fanfare.” The programme will include traditional English, French, and Celtic carols; rollicking Yuletide songs; and modern compositions that celebrate both Christmas and winter in a variety of
styles — — everything from calypso and jazz to the compositions of fictitious and satirical composer P.D.Q. Bach.
Performances at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
