COURTLAND—The Franklin-Southampton Concert Association will present the Canadian Brass at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the Southampton High School auditorium.
Called the world’s most famous brass group by critics and the press, the quintet emerged in the 1970s and established brass music and instruments as a vital force in classical performances. The group is credited with infusing the French horn, trombone, trumpet and tuba with a vitality and relevance, performing Mozart, Bach, Gerswhin and jazz.
The group was the first western brass ensemble to visit China and has performed in New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Academy of Music in Pennsylvania, Ambassador Auditorium in Los Angeles and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
“You are sure to have a wonderful evening with this talented group,” said Nancy Rowe, president of the concert association. “Our members will not want to miss this.”
Admission for adults is $30 and students $10. For more information, call 653-2498.
