About Canadian Brass
With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of the world’s most famous brass group.
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 50 years.
Five tremendous brass musicians — each a virtuoso in his own right — form the legendary Canadian Brass. With five decades under their belts, the ensemble continues to thrill audiences around the world. Their varied repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements created especially for them from a variety of different genres. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun – but never at the expense of the music: whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill and excellence. Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences.
With a discography of over 130 albums and an extensive worldwide touring schedule, the ensemble has become an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences, selling well over 2 million albums worldwide. Ambitious touring projects have seen the ensemble travel across Canada, North and South America, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Russia, and Europe. They were the first brass ensemble from the West to perform in the People’s Republic of China, as well as the first brass group to perform at Carnegie Hall.
