Renowned for genre-bending versatility and joyous performances, the award-winning Canadian Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today. Canadian Brass is made up of five extraordinary talents: visionary founder, tuba legend and business specialist Chuck Daellenbach plus four top brass stars—Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn). Beyond their unparalleled musicality, each player possesses the creativity, good humour and love of performing that is the ensemble's hallmark.
The 2015 Juno Awards (Canadian Grammys) also mark the epic 15th nomination for Juno Award winners Canadian Brass, having first been nominated in 1981 for Best Classical Album for The Village Band. Canadian Brass founding member and tubist Chuck Daellenbach was made Member of the Order of Canada in 2014.
