The Burlington County Library is pleased to announce an exciting performance of the Philly POPS Festival Brass live in the library auditorium this holiday season.

“We are proud to present this special performance by an ensemble of world-class musicians on our library stage,” said BCLS Director Ranjna Das. “This is a wonderful opportunity for friends and family members to celebrate the holidays together by enjoying a fabulous show right here in Burlington County.”

Featuring trumpet, trombone, horn, tuba, and percussion instruments, the performance is sure to put everyone in a festive mood. Sit back and enjoy a selection of classical favorites and well-loved seasonal tunes, including “O Magnum Mysterium,” “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” “Gloria in Excelsis Deo from Christmas Cantata,“ and more.

With a reputation for delighting audiences, the sought-after Philly POPS Festival Brass performed during Pope Francis's visit to Independence Mall in 2015 and the Celebration of Freedom Ceremony on July 4, 2016. The ensemble also performs during numerous Christmas tree lightings and other holiday events each December.
