Charlotte Concerts Brings the Canadian Brass to CPCC in April

Charlotte Concerts is pleased to conclude its 2011-2012 season by bringing the Canadian Brass to CPCC’s Halton Theater stage this April as part of the College’s Sensoria event – a week-long celebration of the arts. With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of “the world’s most famous brass group.”

Since its inception in 1970, the Canadian Brass has explored every possibility of an all-brass chamber group. The ensemble’s repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements created especially for them. These include the works of Renaissance and Baroque masters, Classical works, marches, holiday favorites, ragtime, Dixieland, Latin, jazz, big band, Broadway and Christian music as well as popular songs and standards.

The Canadian Brass has produced more than 100 albums and keeps an extensive world-wide touring schedule, bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere, including the USA, Canada, Japan and Europe. They have sold more than two million albums worldwide, and continue to score Billboard chart positions — most recently with “Stars & Stripes: Canadian Brass Salute America,” which spent eight weeks in the Top 25 on the Billboard Classical Chart during the summer of 2010.
