Peabody’s Aeris Brass Quintet creates some of the most joyous sounds of the Holiday Season.

From WBAL TV in Baltimore, Season to Celebrate—a program capturing the sights and sounds of the holidays and featuring local talent.

“This presentation exemplifies WBAL-TV’s commitment to localism, specifically at a time when our city so desperately needs to move forward,” says Dan Joerres, president and general manager of WBAL-TV. “We’re proud to be able to highlight all the great traditions and talent located right here in Baltimore City.”

For me, the highlight of Season to Celebrate is this clip showcasing the Aeris Brass  Quintet of The Peabody Conservatory, The Johns Hopkins University.

Merry Christmas.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
