Canadian Brass kicks off BPA Arts season

Contributed

Whether it's a child puffing out "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" on a recorder or an orchestra navigating Beethoven, the world of instrumental music is vast and wonderful. One example of supreme musical excellence is a group of five horn players who come from that rather large, often unnoticed, country to the north of the United States.
However, after hearing Canadian Brass, when Kick off the fourth season of Boerne Performing Arts (BPA) at Champion Auditorium at 7:30 pm, Friday, Jan. 30, the adjective "unnoticed" may never again be used to describe their homeland.
This group has been universally acclaimed as the best brass ensemble in the world. In short, there is Canadian Brass - and there is everyone else!
However, Canadian Brass sprang from very humble beginnings. Two musicians, Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts, dreamed of establishing an eminent, professional concert ensemble. With persistence, the duo used their imaginations and musical skills to elevate Canadian Brass from its modest and experimental roots in 1970 into what it is today - five consummate musicians. Daellenbach continues to tour over 40 years later as the mastermind behind the ensemble.
The hallmark of a Canadian Brass performance consists of virtuoso musicians, a wide variety of music and a uniquely entertaining format audiences love!
