Description

Join the Canadian Brass for a holiday program for all ages, full of seasonal favorites with a unique twist.  The pioneering quintet has been performing together since 1970; they were the first Western musicians allowed into China after the Cultural Revolution, and the first chamber music ensemble to play a solo concert on the main stage at Carnegie Hall.
