With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass (www.canadianbrass.com) 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. From Baroque, to Dixieland, to new compositions and arrangements, and formal classical played with lively dialogue and theatrical effects, Canadian Brass performs with the utmost dedication, skill, and excellence.
Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere throughout the USA, Canada, Japan, and Europe. The group has 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 Carnegie Hall.
The group of five—Chuck Daellenbach, tuba; Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti, trumpets; Achilles Liarmakopoulos, trombone; and Bernhard Scully, horn, have been playing to audiences around the world for four decades. Canadian Brass performs on 24-karat gold plated Conn-Selmer instruments and is an Opening Day recording artist. Recordings are available at www.canadianbrassstore.com.
