What to do in Oklahoma on April 2, 2019: Hear Canadian Brass at Edmond's Armstrong Auditorium
Today's featured event:
EDMOND – Internationally renowned brass quintet Canadian Brass returns to the Armstrong Auditorium, 14400 S Bryant Road, for an encore performance at 7:30 tonight.
“Their virtuosity and showmanship put them in a class all by themselves,” Armstrong Auditorium Concert Manager Ryan Malone said in a statement. “And there’s nothing like hearing them in the phenomenal acoustic space of Armstrong Auditorium.”
Their appearance completes the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation’s 20th anniversary Performing Arts Series, which has included sell-out concerts featuring the Vienna Boys Choir, Russian National Ballet and the Julian Bliss Septet, according to a news release.
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 tonight 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.
Tickets to the Canadian Brass performance begin at $31 for balcony seating and $59 for orchestra. For tickets and information, www.ArmstrongAuditorium.org.
