Jay ZollerDowneast BrassThe "Concerts at Jewett” Series, sponsored by the University of Maine at Augusta College of Arts and Sciences and UMA Senior College, will present “A Christmas Concert: Downeast Brass Quintet with Jay Zoller, Organist” on Saturday, December 8, 2 PM at the South Parish Congregational Church, 9 Church Street, Augusta.

For many years South Parish Congregational Church and its fine organist, Jay Zoller, have shared their magnificent organ with the public in a special holiday concert featuring the Downeast Brass Quintet. This year they invited Concerts at Jewett to make that joyous event our December concert. We are delighted to co-sponsor this event this season.

Mr. Zoller plays the historic 1866 E. & G. G. Hook Organ for services and concerts. He comes to South Parish with long experience in church music and recital playing. 

The Downeast Brass has performed in many New England settings. Audiences have been impressed by these fine Maine performers on the concert stage, at weddings, festivals, and on parade. Their wide range of musical styles makes them the preferred musical choice for many occasions.

Tickets are $10, students $5, 12 & under free. Tickets are available at Pat's Pizza in Augusta, Apple Valley Books in Winthrop, and at the door. Call 621-3551, or email umasc@maine.edu for more information or for mail order tickets. www.concertsatjewett.com.
