A Canadian Brass Christmas

Back by popular demand! The internationally famous Canadian Brass returns this holiday season for an evening of impeccable music and witty repartee, perfect for your whole family. Renowned for joyous performances and their iconic white running shoes, this quintet will warm your heart with sparkling brass standards and toe-tapping holiday favorites. Founded nearly 50 years ago, this award-winning ensemble, which is largely responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet, only gets better with age. Canadian Brass is composed of five musical masters: visionary founder and tuba legend, Chuck Daellenbach, Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn). “After four decades, it’s great to see Canadian Brass—practically an institution at this point—still sounding fresh, still attracting young virtuosos and, above all, still having fun with the music” (NPR Tiny Desk Concert).

Tickets: $60, $51, $36

A pre-performance discussion featuring School of Music professor Michael Nickens ("Doc Nix") and brass students will begin 45 minutes prior to the performance.
