Internationally renowned brass quintet Canadian Brass returns to the Armstrong Auditorium stage for an encore performance at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2.
Their appearance completes the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation’s 20th anniversary Performing Arts Series, which has included sellout concerts including the Vienna Boys Choir, Russian National Ballet and, more recently, the Julian Bliss Septet.
“Their virtuosity and showmanship put them in a class all by themselves,” Armstrong Auditorium Concert Manager Ryan Malone said. “And there’s nothing like hearing them in the phenomenal acoustic space of Armstrong Auditorium.”
Since its founding in 1970, Canadian Brass has performed its diverse range of compositions and arrangements to sold-out audiences around the world. In nearly half a century, the Grammy award-winning ensemble has achieved a reputation for creating music that is played with a joyful sense of exuberance — as evidenced by the members’ unique performance attire composed of formal black suits and white tennis shoes — but is nevertheless marked by a dedication to craft and excellence. Their appearance April 2 marks the fifth time they have performed in Edmond as part of the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation’s Performing Arts Series.
Since 1998, the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation has welcomed notable performances ranging from classical, jazz and folk music, theater, classical ballet, folk dance and more. With only 75 feet from the stage to the back wall, the Armstrong Auditorium continues to receive praise for its beauty and fabulous acoustics. The 823-seat theater is crafted for the most exceptional projection of balance and sound and boasts a nine-millisecond initial time delay gap — providing an intimate listening experience.
Tickets to the Canadian Brass performance begin at $31 for balcony seating and $59 for orchestra. For more information about ticket options, subscriptions, group rates or current exhibits, please visit www.ArmstrongAuditorium.org or call 405-285-1010.
