Canadian Brass

Mon. Dec. 19, 2022 at 8pm

Presented by The Philharmonic Society of Orange County

Holiday Program

Celebrate the holidays with the internationally renowned, award-winning Canadian Brass performing seasonal favorites, holiday classics, and brass standards in an entertaining evening of virtuosic playing and heartwarming humor.

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.” Masters of concert presentations, Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. Each of their concerts will show the full range from trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them–from formal classical presentation to music served up with lively dialogue and theatrical effects. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun–but never at the expense of the music; whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill and excellence.
