A Christmas Celebration

arr. Kenny Bierschenk

A Christmas Celebration is a medley of familiar tunes. It begins with the regal “March of the Kings,” followed by “What Child Is This,” “I Saw Three Ships,” “Lo, How a Rose” and “Bring a Torch”. There are wonderful displays of woodwind and brass choirs with carols layered together for a festive and grand finale!

Arranger Kenny Bierschenk (b.1955) holds degrees in music from the University of Texas and the University of Cincinnati. He is director of bands at Taylor High School and conductor of the Mount Community Concert Band near Cincinnati, Ohio. As a performer, Mr. Bierschenk has considerable experience as a mem- ber of community bands, orchestras, and choral groups and as a trumpet soloist.
