River City Brass plans holiday 'Christmas Brasstacular' tour.

River City Brass is again collaborating on a December series of concerts with regional youth choirs for its “Christmas Brasstacular” performances.

Those attending will enjoy holiday favorites and music from popular Christmas movies.

This year’s schedule includes performances on Nov. 29 at Linton Middle School (Penn Hills School District); Dec. 1 at the Palace Theatre in Greensburg; Dec. 4 at Upper St. Clair High School; and Dec. 6 at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland, according to a news release.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets range from $20-$41, depending on location.

The band’s 35-concert, five-location regional concert series is unique in the performing arts industry, the release notes. Each year, tens of thousands of people at home and on the road enjoy River City’s special blend of American tunes, Big Band swing and jazz, music from Broadway and Hollywood, classical and contemporary masterworks and traditional marches.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
