7:30 pm, January 20, 2017 Canadian Brass takes the MCA Main Stage.

In its 45th season, the game-changing Canadian Brass has performed in virtually every major concert hall in the world, been seen by hundreds of millions of people on television, sold 2 million of its approximately 100 albums worldwide, and contributed nearly 600 new works and arrangements to the brass quintet repertoire. Renowned for genre-bending versatility and joyous performances, the award-winning Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today.

 Canadian Brass is made up of five extraordinary talents: visionary founder, tuba legend and business specialist Chuck Daellenbach plus four top brass stars—Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn). Beyond their unparalleled musicality, each player possesses the creativity, good humor and love of performing that is the ensemble’s hallmark.  In addition to a non-stop touring and recording schedule, Canadian Brass is continually innovating to expand the brass repertoire, satisfy and challenge a loyal fan base, and use new media to connect to audiences worldwide. They provide extensive educational outreach under the banners "Effortless Performance" and "Shape Your Musical Destiny," the latter which helps emerging musicians navigate the brave new world of self-production and promotion.  

 Exclusive artists for Conn-Selmer Musical Instruments, the five play on state-of-the-art 24K gold-plated Artisan Bach and Conn horns, handcrafted in the USA.
