Five tremendous brass musicians – each a virtuoso in his own right – form the legendary Canadian Brass. Friends Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts first came together in 1970 to form a brass quintet – a chamber music setting not entirely new, but never before having garnered the success and storied career Canadian Brass would achieve over the next 42 years.
With a vast repertoire from Baroque masters to marches, holiday favorites to Dixieland, and jazz to Broadway, Canadian Brass has created their own musical world by transcribing, arranging and commissioning more than 200 works.
With a discography of over 90 albums and an extensive world-wide touring schedule, Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere. They have sold over one million albums worldwide and continue to score Billboard chart positions while playing to packed houses throughout the USA, Canada, Japan and Europe.
