    Canadian Brass

    Canadian Brass

    Considered “the world’s most famous brass group,” the Canadian Brass first came together in 1970 and their imagination and consummate musicianship elevated the art of the brass quintet to what it is today. Through 40 years of creative arrangements and commissions, the Canadian Brass performs a wide variety of repertoire from Renaissance and Classical masters to jazz and popular music. The group has sold over 2 million records worldwide and continues to entertain audiences with their engaging yet virtuosic performances.

    “These are the men who put brass music on the map…” The Washington Post

    “Breathtakingly virtuosic playing…superhuman musicianship.”

    Finally, use of unmetered spaces is encouraged. If possible, Rockport Music asks that you consider avoiding metered parking during the day (evening concerts are fine), as merchants and restaurants depend on these spaces for their patrons.
