My favourite music to play at christmas has to be any decent piece that has nothing to do with christmas.

I had playing naff arrangements of christmas carols

BAH HUMBUG!

my first ever performance was a trombone duet of little donkey, so I have fond memories of that one!

Other than that it's all a bit cheesy so I can't really pick out a favourite!

Can't remeber what my first piece of Christmas music was because it was that long ago :oops: . We play Christmas Crackers arr by John Iveson which always goes down well, especially the third movement (We wish you...) when our conductor gets all poignant and says really moving stuff!

I'm sure my first Christmas piece (not carol) was Jingle Bells! Card size part, probably Siebert many, many years since I played it though!

Favourite? Hard to say, I like so many.......except an arrangement of "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" I played last week........oh dear!

Had a run-through Andy Duncan's new arrangement of Leroy Anderson's Christmas Festival last night - an excellent piece we will definitely be making use of in the coming weeks.

As for my first Crimbo piece - I think it was Away In A Manger when I was about 12 years old and my uncle thrust a cornet in my mouth while I went with the senior band during their annual carolling around the local hospitals.

Santa Claus-trophobia by Sandy Smith has my vote evry time. It's got everything. Novelty bass solos, gorgeous euph moments, loud razzy trombone ensemble.....oh yeah, and some cornets and horns too!!!

my favourite is "Christmas Swingalong!" cheesey as a cheese board but good fun..gets u into the Christmas spirit!

We played that on Thurseday i have to agree it is cheesy but it is really fun plus we are gonna do all this standing up buisness in it so we will stand then sit down it will be so funny.

My dad plays that at his band i must admit its a great toe tapper it is dead funny and i now all the words
 
Is santa-claustrophobia the one with the theme from the film Santa Claus in the middle? If so, which one is that? the theme's a euph solo, and i absolutely love that, and the rest of the piece.
 
The only problem with crimbo tunes and Brass Bands is that all the composers and arrangers try to come up with these really good tunes but they turn out really cheesy. IE/ Christmas Swingalong that is so cheesy.

Good piece, but you need have a cornet/flugel player who can go off!!!! 8) I mean, I know the solo's on the Rep part, but I've seen it covered by solo's, 2nds, 4th seat solos and flugels.
 
I think iam gonna have to ask at school and at band if we can get this one cas it sounds really cool and differant and seen as though i am repi am gonna be a bit byest.

Thanks for the idea
