Charlotte Concerts Brings the Canadian Brass to CPCC in April

Charlotte Concerts is pleased to conclude its 2011-2012 season by
bringing the Canadian Brass to CPCC's Halton Theater stage this April
as part of the College's Sensoria event – a week-long celebration of
the arts. With an international reputation as one of the most popular
brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction
of "the world's most famous brass group."

Since its inception in 1970, the Canadian Brass has explored every
possibility of an all-brass chamber group. The ensemble's repertoire
features brass standards as well as a wide-ranging library of original
arrangements created especially for them. 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 and standards.

The Canadian Brass has produced more than 100 albums and keeps an
extensive world-wide touring schedule, bringing brass music to mass
audiences everywhere, including the USA, Canada, Japan and Europe.
They have sold more than two million albums worldwide, and continue to
score Billboard chart positions — most recently with "Stars & Stripes:
Canadian Brass Salute America," which spent eight weeks in the Top 25
on the Billboard Classical Chart during the summer of 2010.

WHEN: Friday, April 20; 8 p.m.

WHERE: Dale F. Halton Theater, Overcash building, CPCC Central Campus,
1206 Elizabeth Ave.
