More About Canadian Brass:
Canadian Brass is made up of five extraordinary talents: visionary founder, tuba legend and business specialist Chuck Daellenbach plus four of the next generation's top brass stars—Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn). Beyond their unbelievable technical skills and musicality, each player possesses the creativity, good humour and genuine love of performing that has become the hallmark of Canadian Brass.
The varied Canadian Brass repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements created especially for them and by them. These include the works of Renaissance and Baroque masters, classical pieces, contemporary compositions, marches, holiday favourites, ragtime, Dixieland, Latin, jazz, big band, Broadway tunes and Christian music as well as popular songs and standards. Having started with a very limited base, Canadian Brass has created their own musical world by transcribing, arranging and commissioning more than 600 works. They have transformed a previously neglected group of instruments with a limited repertoire into a versatile and vital ensemble that can play everything from Gabrieli to Gershwin. They played a critical role in establishing Scott Joplin with today's audiences through their research, arrangements and recordings of his "rags" and other works. And for many people, it wouldn't be Christmas without one of the Canadian Brass's famous Holiday Concerts.
