HOLIDAY SOUNDS

Bristol man among the musicians.

MIDDLEBURY — Exalt Brass, a national quartet with local roots, will be spreading holiday cheer this season at Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury with three Christmas concerts.

The concerts will be at 7 p.m. Friday and at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday at the Essenhaus Heritage Hall. Music selections will include lively holiday classics, pop tunes and Christmas hymns.

“Exalt Brass is a Christian ensemble that uplifts the spirits of our listeners and this Christmas concert encompasses that vision,” said Exalt trumpet player and Bristol native Josh Ganger.

Two guest artists, vocalist Tariq Al-Sabir and pianist Joel Nygren, will join Exalt Brass for the Middlebury concerts.

Exalt Brass was formed by Ganger and fellow band members Kevin Sabik, Rebecca Olason and William Marrin when they were students at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, a music conservatory in Baltimore, Md. Since getting together, the quartet has performed throughout the Midwest and on the East Coast. Last summer, Exalt Brass performed at venues in New York City, Chicago, Indianapolis, the Kennedy Center and Washington, D.C. Jazz Fest.

Despite these venues, Ganger said there’s always something special about playing for a hometown crowd in northern Indiana.

“It’s always great to return to Indiana and share my talents with so many friends and family,” Ganger said. “No matter where my travels take me, the Michiana area is always my favorite region to perform in. I have so many great memories of growing up in the community, and it is a joy to share my music here.”

Tickets for the Exalt Brass Christmas concerts at Essenhaus Heritage Hall are $10 per person and available at the door, online at exaltbrass.eventbrite.com, or at three Middlebury businesses: MAISCO, Max Myers Motors and Varns and Hoover Hardware. The Essenhaus Heritage Hall is located at 13489 C.R. 16, Middlebury.
