ABOUT CANADIAN BRASS With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of “the world’s most famous brass group.” Masters of concert presentations, Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. Each of their concerts will show the full range 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. Whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill and excellence. The varied Canadian Brass repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of more than 600 original arrangements. With a discography of more than 130 albums, including several videos, and an extensive world-wide touring schedule, Canadian Brass continues to score Billboard chart positions. They are an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan and Europe. They have toured South America, the Soviet Union, the Middle East and Australia. They were the first brass ensemble from the West to perform in the People’s Republic of China as well as the first brass group to take the main stage at the venerable Carnegie Hall.
