Canadian Brass with Organist Jeffrey Brillhart
March 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$39 – $49
With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of “the world’s most famous brass group.” Masters of concert presentations, Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun – but never at the expense of the music: Whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill, and excellence.
Canadian Brass, which performs works in the classical repertoire, with daring leaps into jazz and popular standards and will be joined by renowned organist Jeffrey Brillhart. This special organ and brass program will be their third collaboration at the Kimmel Center. The program contains works from various Canadian Brass albums, along with new arrangements and collaborations with the impressive talents of Brillhart, the director of music and fine arts at the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church.
Jeffrey Brillhart has performed throughout the United States, South America, South Africa, Mexico and Europe as conductor and organist and is known for his musical versatility. He was awarded first place at the American Guild of Organists National Competition in Organ Improvisation in 1994. In October 2016, he was awarded the Elaine Brown Prize for Choral Excellence by the ACDA-PA.
