In eleventh century Europe, night watches would carry horns to mark the passage of time and to signal warnings. Gradually, the watchmen became proficient musicians, performing at ceremonies, official functions, and eventually, in social settings.  Today military and political occasions are still marked with brass flourishes, and occasionally, churches and cathedrals ring with the spirited sound of brass choirs.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on the Honolulu Brass Choir’s upcoming concert at St. Andrew’s Cathedral.

The Honolulu Brass Choir presents music for the holiday season at St. Andrew’s Cathedral Monday, December 16th, 7:30pm.  Call 808-489-5038 or order tickets online.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
