Program Notes

New Orleans and its unique music history has impacted the entire world through the roots of jazz and popular music. Robert W. Smith gives us this New Orleans holiday celebration in a very unique setting featuring Up on the Housetop and When the Saints Go Marching In. Beginning with a trumpet solo inspired by Louis Armstrong, the piece quickly transitions to a Dixieland Jazz quintet. The full band, in the tradition of the New Orleans Brass Bands, joins the street parade with Saint Nick leading the celebration shouting “Heaux, Heaux, Heaux!”
