Renowned for genre-bending versatility and joyous performances, the award-winning Canadian Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today.
In its forty-seventh season, the game-changing brass ensemble has performed in virtually every major concert hall in the world, been seen by hundreds of millions of people on television, sold two million of its approximately one hundred albums worldwide, and contributed nearly six hundred new works and arrangements to the brass quintet repertoire.
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 Jeff Nelsen (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 nonstop 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 also provide extensive educational outreach for emerging musicians.
