Five tremendous brass musicians - each a virtuoso in his own right - form the legendary Canadian Brass. With four decades under their belts, the ensemble continues to thrill audiences around the world. Their varied repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements created especially for them from a variety of different genres. Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences.
With a discography of over 90 albums and an extensive worldwide touring schedule, the ensemble has become an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences, selling well over 2 million albums worldwide. Ambitious touring projects have seen the ensemble travel across the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. They were the first brass ensemble from the West to perform in the People’s Republic of China (where they returned for a 5-city tour to great acclaim in the spring of 2010) as well as the first brass group to perform at Carnegie Hall. They have journeyed to Australia, the Middle East, Russia and South America. HarrisonParrott is delighted to be arranging international tours across Asia and Australia for Canadian Brass.
"One need not be partial to brass, or even to classical music, to love Canadian Brass. For these famous five are masters not only of music but also of presentation. After 40 years on stage, they've got the chops of virtuosos and the deadpan delivery of the best stand-up comics." (The Plain Dealer)
"The Canadian Brass achieve a blend that's akin to the dark smoothness of aged Scotch whisky, purring out rounded legato lines in which no breath seems to transpire." (Classics Today)
