Mansfield Brass Quintet

The Mansfield Brass Quintet will be playing its annual evening of traditional holiday music on Saturday, December 19, 2009 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.. Consisting of two trumpets, a trombone, a tuba, and a French horn, the group begins caroling at the corner of Mansfield and Madison Roads, proceeds down Madison, continues up Walsh to the Manor’s Christmas tree and finally down Mansfield to Madison ending its tour of the Gladstone Manor in the cul-de-sac at the intersection of East and West Windermere Terraces. The group stops to play under the Gladstone Manor’s historic street lights and at the Gladstone Manor Holiday tree. This year, as last, the Mansfield Brass will be joined by carolers.
