STAMFORD - The First Presbyterian Church in Stamford will hold its annual Christmas concert Sunday.

It's the 25th year in a row that the church, nicknamed the Fish Church, will host the New York Symphonic Brass for the concert.

The performers will play 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 2 French horns, a tuba, percussion instruments and the church's in-house organ.

Jim Wetherald, the church's organist, practiced Friday in front of News 12 cameras.

Wetherald has been at the church for 38 years, and has been playing the same organ for 25.

The concert is expected to end with an audience-involved performance of classic Christmas carols.
