The Los Alamos Concert Association kicks off its 2013-2014 season with a concert featuring The Canadian Brass. Having performed in virtually every major concert hall in the world, been seen by hundreds of millions of people on television, sold two million albums worldwide, and contributed nearly 600 new works and arrangements to the brass quintet repertoire.
The concert will be 4 p.m. Sept. 29 in the in the Duane Smith Auditorium.
The varied Canadian Brass 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.
Having started with a very limited base, Canadian Brass has created its own musical world by transcribing, arranging and commissioning more than 200 works, including critically acclaimed compositions from Michael Kamen, Luther Henderson, Bramwell Tovey, Don Gillis and more. They have transformed a previously neglected group of instruments with a limited repertoire into a versatile and vital ensemble that can play everything from Gabrieli to Gershwin.
