The Buzz Brass quintet is coming to High River for an evening filled with good cheer and classics that conjure up the magic of the holiday season.
Set for Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at High River United Church, the concert will feature brass — trumpets, horns and trombones — at its best, delivered with intelligence, whimsy and skill.
The audience will be able to enjoy Bach's Let My Spirit Be Joyful and the traditional Silent Night, as well as modern repertoire like Sleigh Ride and The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Since 2002, the Montreal-based Buzz Brass quintet has captivated music lovers in North America, Europe and China with innovative concert programs, praiseworthy recordings and a notable repertoire.
The group has received numerous awards and distinctions and has made appearances at Edinburgh’s 2015 Fringe Festival, Beijing’s 2016 Meet in Beijing Arts Festival and New York’s 2018 Chamber Music America.
Buzz Brass collaborates with established symphony orchestras in Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Winnipeg and Quebec City as well as with Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra.
Tickets, which are $35 in advance and $40 at door (youth are $10), are available at highrivergiftofmusic.com or the High River United Church (Monday to Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.).
