CHRISTMAS BLAST is an exciting, fun holiday medley, featuring many popular carols. It is easy enough to be played by most ensembles with minimal rehearsal, but fun and interesting for players and audience alike.
The composer writes:
"In 2006 I was asked to score a car commercial advertising a new fleet of vehicles for a European auto maker. The idea was that a brass quintet would be performing outside dressed in black and white while being surrounded by these cars. While the group played, the cars would accompany the quintet using one of the four pitches available. Needless to say the Brass group carried the majority of the arrangement whilst the car horns bombarded the score intermittently. It was indeed a Blast!
I extracted the majority of the original work and filled in the blanks. Trumpets, feel free to ornament throughout to make it lively."
