Striking. Daring. Canadian. With four decades under their belts, Canadian Brass continues to thrill audiences around the world, and they don’t look like they are letting up anytime soon! They head our way with a program of specially arranged holiday favorites, sure to get you in the spirit of the season.
Renowned for genre-bending versatility and joyous performances, the award-winning Canadian Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today. From trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them – from formal classical presentation to music served up with lively dialogue and theatrical effects – they do it all with spontaneity, virtuosity, dedication, exceptional skill, and, most of all, loads of fun.
