Canadian Brass bring their trademark style to The Centrum

Canadian Brass will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 9, 2003 at The Centrum, 6823 Cypresswood Drive, Spring. The quintet — now finishing its 30th season — consists of Joe Burgstaller, trumpet; Ryan Anthony, trumpet; Jeff Nelsen, French horn; Gene Watts, trombone; and Chuck Daellenbach on tuba. Canadian Brass is presented by Cypress Creek FACE.

The Washington Post proclaims the Canadian Brass as “one of the world’s greatest ensembles. All five men have an agility that comes close to the phenomenal, and they work at achieving a wide dynamic range that fills their music with lights and shadows.”

The group has a long history of recording classical repertoire. They have a special affinity for Baroque music, which requires the brilliance and musical structure that has become the Canadian Brass’ trademark. They not only present works in the classical repertoire but continue to take daring leaps into jazz, contemporary concert music and popular songs.

The evening’s program will feature Handel’s “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” from Solomon, Bach-Mills’ Toccata & Fugue in D Minor, Jelly Roll Morton’s Black Bottom Stomp, W.C. Handy’s St. Louis Blues, a Tommy Dorsey Medley and a Glenn Miller Songbook, among others.

Cypress Creek FACE, a non-profit performing arts foundation, brings a variety of performances to The Centrum, a world-class, 900-seat facility on the campus of the Cypress Creek Christian Community Center on Cypresswood Drive in Spring.
