A note from trumpeter Tom Battenberg of the Columbus Symphony Brass Quintet, which put on A Brassman's Holiday concert about which you may have read in the Dec. 6 print edition of The Beat:

"This is to let you know that our Brass Quintet concert last Wednesday night was a big hit. All in all there were over 400 in attendance and we raised $3723.59, all of which was donated to the Ohio Food Bank."
