For almost 40 years, holiday concerts with Music of the Baroque have been a Chicago tradition. This year, the Music of the Baroque Brass ensemble visited WFMT's Levin studio to share some selections from MOB's 2017 holiday concert, including two 17th century dances by Michael Praetorius. Both dances were published in his collection Terpsichore, named after the Greek muse of dance. Kick up your heels to these two dance tunes featuring trumpeters Barbara Butler, Charles Geyer, Scott Quackenbush, Jennifer Marotta, and trombonists Jay Evans, Mark Lawrence, Michael Becker, and Jared Rodin.
