Canadian Brass (2018)

“After four decades, it’s great to see Canadian Brass—practically an institution at this point—still sounding fresh, still attracting young virtuosos and, above all, still having fun with the music.” ~NPR

Welcome the Christmas season with a performance of lively carols and other holiday favorites by the world’s most famous brass quintet. Clad in tuxes and white running shoes, the members of Canadian Brass have brought an “unbeatable blend of virtuosity, spontaneity and humor” (The Washington Post) to concert halls for nearly 50 years.

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.

Performance date and time: 

Monday, Dec. 17, 7:30 p.m. Remind me

Buying options: Discounts for groups, youth, seniors, students, CU employees and season ticket orders. Learn more
