Viewpoint: This is Charlotte Concerts’ final performance of the season. “We’ve had a tremendous year,” said Scott Bauer, Charlotte Concerts board president. “Being able to end this season with Canadian Brass is certainly an up note for our organization and our loyal and new patrons.”

The sensational brass quintet is known for their engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences, as well as a repertoire featuring brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements created especially for the group. These include the works of Renaissance and Baroque masters, classical works, marches, holiday favorites, ragtime, Latin, jazz, big band, Broadway and more.

Having sold more than two million albums worldwide, the talented ensemble of five continue to score Billboard chart positions – most recently with their rousing recording of patriotic songs and marches, Stars and Stripes: Canadian Brass Salute America, which spent eight weeks in the Top 25 on the Billboard Classical Chart during the summer of 2012, peaking at #2.Canadian Brass’s latest album, Takes Flight, is the first non-piano release on the Steinway label.
