Cedarville, Ohio—Ever seen five brass players give a world-class concert in tuxedos and tennis shoes? Now’s your chance as The Canadian Brass comes south of their border to perform exciting renditions of concert favorites. This unique concert begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 25 in the Jeremiah Chapel of the Dixon Ministry Center on the Cedarville University campus. The Canadian Brass is best known for their Baroque music and their rendition of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor, but their repertoire goes far beyond that. The quintet has taken daring leaps into jazz, contemporary concert music, and popular songs while incorporating lively dialogue and theatrical effects into their performances. Currently in its 31st year, The Canadian Brass has performed with major symphony orchestras around the world and has made appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Today,” and “Evening at Pops.” The Canadian government has invited them to play for visiting heads of state on numerous occasions. Members Ryan Anthony and Joe Burgstaller (trumpet), Jeff Nelsen (French horn), Eugene Watts (trombone), and Charles Daellenbach (tuba) showcase their talents through 24-karat gold-plated Yamaha instruments. Cost is $10. For tickets, call 1-800-860-7625 or visit www.cedarville.edu/dept/cao/concerts/2001/2001concert.htm. To learn more about The Canadian Brass, visit www.canadianbrass.com.
