The Canadian Brass has thrilled Hancher audiences on five previous occasions, dating back to 1979. But the ensemble’s return in 2018 will mark its first Hancher appearance in more than two decades. A lot has changed since then—including for Hancher—but one thing has remained the same: the members of the Canadian Brass make lovely music together. Led by co-founding member Chuck Daellenbach on tuba, the quintet will bring the sparkle of the holidays to the stage.


Event Sponsors:
Lee and Kazi Alward
Daryl K. and Nancy J. Granner
Bryan and Jan Lawler

Running time: One hour and 45 minutes (includes one 20-minute intermission)

Canadian Brass brings the holiday season to Hancher
The Daily Iowan - Saturday, December 1, 2018
The five brass players entered through a side entrance, unnoticed at first by the audience. They had already begun to play; heads searched frantically, entranced by the smooth sounds coming from their golden instruments. They walked casually through the audience, and slowly made their way to the stage. They swayed side to side to the rhythm of the music. Their instruments were a part of them, an inseparable extension of their body.
