The Philly POPS Brass Quintet played at the Comcast Center to promote their Holiday Spectacular on Thursday. From the POPS:

The Philly POPS Festival Brass quintet features trombone, trumpet, French horn, and tuba that will surely delight the crowd. The Comcast Holiday Spectacular, now in its ninth year, has become a must-see holiday tradition in Philadelphia, entertaining people of all ages and spreading holiday cheer. The free show features performances of Carol of the Bells, Jingle Bell Rock, The Twelve Days of Christmas and performances by the renowned Philadelphia Ballet. Full of stunning original holiday imagery and music and created using cutting-edge technology, it appears on the 83’ X 25’ Comcast Experience video wall in the Comcast Center lobby.

Enjoy the festive festivities.

The loveliest song was Sleigh Ride, which ended in a jaunty way. Jaunty, indeed.
