Founded in 1970, the Canadian Brass has made well over 70 recordings and commissioned hundreds of transcriptions and original works for brass quintet. Named the "world's leading brass ensemble" by The Washington Post, the Canadian Brass is known for its virtuosic skill, broad repertoire and humorous presentation style - and their footwear.
Hanukah music has not always been that easy to find on the radio or on CD in December, but there's never been a Hanukah music shortage with the Canadian Brass.
Every holiday season, The Canadian Brass travel the country on their traditional Holiday Concert tour. See if they're coming to your town by visiting their website www.canadianbrass.com.
The music heard here is their "Hanukah Medley" (Opening Day ODR 9328).
