Canadian Brass Plays at IU Next Month

The Canadian Brass quintet, will perform at 8 p.m. 3 August at the Musical Arts Center on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University. Tickets are $20 ($10 for students).

Canadian Brass -- which was formed nearly 40 years ago in Toronto, Ontario -- is known as much for its charming personality and rapport with audiences as it is for the Baroque music that has become its trademark. From formal classical concerts to music punctuated by lively dialogue and theatrical effects, the "fabulous five" are now more relevant than ever as they travel the world mentoring the next generation of brass performers.

The internationally renowned quintet includes hornist and I.U. Jacobs School of Music faculty member Jeff Nelsen.
