What's missing? Canadian Brass!

Contributed

Pictured: Here are the 24-karat gold-plated Bach instruments and the trademark white running shoes. The only thing missing are the fantastic five musicians and a dinner prelude for the highly anticipated performance by Canadian Brass in Boerne on Friday, Jan. 30.

Friday, Jan. 30, kicks off the 2015 Boerne Performing Arts concert series with the brilliant brass ensemble from "Up North" - Canadian Brass! The performance begins at 7:30 pm at Boerne Champion Auditorium.
Canadian Brass' hallmark performances consist of virtuoso musicians, a wide variety of music and a uniquely entertaining format the audience loves.
Again this year, Boerne Performing Arts partners with local businesses to provide "concert favors" to all ticket holders. These special perks encourage concertgoers to "taste test" local restaurant offerings and transform the evening to a special event with friends and loved ones.
For the Canadian Brass concert, Little Gretel will offer a special "Sweet Canadian Treat" with the purchase of any dinner entrée. A coupon for this complimentary treat is provided with each ticket purchased for the Canadian Brass performance.
Fifth grade students from Boerne, Bandera and Comfort will be among the 1,000 students attending a special "in school" one-hour performance by Canadian Brass. Additionally, the visiting musicians will present a master class educating high school band students.
These educational programs are made possible through the generous sponsorships of Boerne Convention & Visitors Bureau, Frost, Hearts' Home Acoustics, Hill Country Memorial-Boerne and Authentic Custom Homes, LLC. These businesses provide funding for these Boerne Performing Arts "For Kids" events so that there is no cost to the students.
In addition to the Community Partnership with Little Gretel, the Patrick Heath Public Library will offer educational programs entitled "Strike Up the Band" and "Read All About It," which will encourage readers of all ages to become familiar with literary works written by Canadian authors that are set in Canada or works that detail music.
Tickets for Canadian Brass are $30, $40 and $60, and $20 for students. Tickets are available at www.BoernePerformingArts.com or by calling 830-331-9079.
Sneak previews of Canadian Brass are available at www.canadianbrass.com.
