Welcome the holiday season with A Canadian Brass Christmas Friday, December 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall.

Enjoy the sounds of the season as you’ve never heard them before when Canadian Brass takes the stage at Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall, Friday, December 7.

Called the “Marx Brothers of brass,” this Grammy Award-winning quintet brings spontaneity, humor and a little bit of audience education to every show. Their Hatfield Hall performance will feature several numbers from their latest holiday CD.

Canadian Brass was founded in 1970 with two trumpet players, a French horn, trombone and a tuba. Today, the group still features virtuoso musicians on these instruments, including group co-founder Chuck Daellenbach, a recipient of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honor.

Called “the most successful brass quintet in history” by the Toronto Star, Canadian Brass has played to packed houses around the world, including a five-city tour in China where they were the first Western brass ensemble to perform. The group has sales of more than 2 million albums and has frequently scored spots at the top of the Billboard magazine classical charts. It is often selected by the Canadian government to play for visiting heads of state, becoming one of the country’s best-known musical ambassadors.

A Canadian Brass Christmas at Hatfield Hall is being presented in partnership with Arts Illiana, Art Works, the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
