Symphony Series: Canadian Brass

Sunday, November 18, 2018 | 3pm
Cordiner Hall

Canadian Brass (known for their unique performance attire of formal black suits with white running shoes) has gained an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today. Their repertoire ranges 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. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun – but never at the expense of the music:

Whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill and excellence.
