Dozens of brass musicians will gather for a free holiday concert at the Harmony Museum’s Harmonist Barn, 303 Mercer Road on Saturday, November 25 from 2 – 4 p.m. The annual concert, called Trombones on Ice, is jointly sponsored by the Harmony Museum and local music teachers Laura Crytzer and Bruce Lazier.
Lazier started Trombones on Ice several decades ago, as a fun way to gather past and present students together for the joy of playing holiday favorites together. “We’ve held the concert in Harmony the past several years,” says Lazier. “The barn is a wonderful venue, if the weather cooperates. The forecast for Saturday looks good, so I think we are in luck.”
There is no admission, but cash donations will be welcomed to aid in the upkeep of the barn. Attendees are asked to bring their own chairs and to dress warmly.
Harmony is at I-79 exits 87-88, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh. The Harmony Museum, located at 218 Mercer Street, sponsors many events and exhibits, and presents the community’s extraordinary history with guided tours at 1 and 2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
