    AN all-brass chamber group from Canada will bring the sound and the excitement of brass music to local audiences next Thursday night. An event of the ongoing international Belt and Road music season, the concert features Canadian Brass.

    Their program will include well-received classical pieces like “Little Fugue in G Minor” by J. S. Bach, Mozart’s “Turkish Rondo,” works by modern composers like Leonard Bernstein’s “Divertimento,” excerpts from Ye Xiaogang’s “The Great Wall,” arranged pop songs like The Beatles’ “Penny Lane,” as well as the soundtrack from Spanish film “The Locket” composed by Jose Padilla.

    One of the most popular brass ensembles today, the band founded in 1970 consists of founding member Chuck Daellenbach (tuba), Christopher Coletti and Caleb Hudson (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn).

    Masters of concert presentations, Canadian Brass has developed an engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. Their concerts will show the full range from trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them. Their rich repertoire features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original arrangements.

    These include the works of Renaissance and Baroque masters, classical works, marches, holiday favorites, ragtime, Dixieland, Latin, jazz, big band, Broadway and Christian music as well as popular songs. The versatile ensemble can play everything from Gabrieli to Gershwin.

    The band has created their own musical world by transcribing, arranging and commissioning more than 600 works, including critically acclaimed compositions from Michael Kamen, Luther Henderson, Bramwell Tovey and Don Gillis.

    With a discography of over 130 albums and an extensive touring schedule, Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences. They have sold well over 2 million albums worldwide, and played to packed houses throughout the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe. They have also toured Australia, the Middle East, Russia and several times in China.

    Millions of television viewers have watched Canadian Brass on “The Tonight Show,” “Today” and “Entertainment Tonight.” They have also appeared on Hunan TV for the Chinese New Year.

    The musicians perform exclusively on a set of 24K gold-plated Artisan Bach and Conn horns.Time: 8 p.m., April 13 Tickets: 80-680 yuan

    Venue: Shenzhen Concert Hall, intersection of Hongli Road and Yitian Road, Futian District (福田区红荔路和益田路交汇处深圳音乐厅)
