On Tuesday, 17th December (19:00), SPIRIT BRASS ENSEMBLE - a novel ensemble in the world of Romanian music - invites you, waiting for the winter holidays, at a beautiful carols concert. You will gladly hear again international hits as ‘White Christmas’, or ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’, but you will also hear a selection of Romanian carols, all of these in the unique sonority specific for brass. Directed by the conductor MIHAI CEASCAI (Radio National Orchestra’s head of tuba), the ensemble proposes a special artistic experience for the music lovers in which the brass instruments, sometimes accompanied by instruments of persecution, are the only used instruments. The brass band repertoire is extremely popular in the USA and Western Europe.
