Boasting a discography of more than 70 recordings and numerous appearances on top stage and screen venues, internationally acclaimed Canadian Brass graces the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's stage with more than 40 years of experience in performing a range of genre-bending compositions. Much like Einstein postulating the curvature of spacetime in full clown make-up, Canadian Brass combines virtuosity with good humour, spreading its classical, opera, jazz, and pop roots through songful soils. This year, conductor Richard Lee combs back ear cilia with a sampling of Duke Ellington, Gershwin, and tribute to The Beatles, making for a performance as light and appealing as a winged Weimaraner.
A cornerstone of the North American brass scene, Canadian Brass' burnished quintet appeals to burgeoning and inveterate concertgoers alike. Their ear-gripping performances comprise some of Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra's most popular shows, with tickets selling faster than hot cakes disguised as gold bullions.
