Heartland Youth Choir Performs with Canadian Brass

Singers in the Heartland Youth Choir's Cantilena ensemble will sing along with the Canadian Brass during their Holiday Concert on Friday, December 9, at Sheslow Auditorium in Des Moines. 

The event is hosted by the Civic Music Association.

The brass quintet Canadian Brass has performed in virtually every major concert hall in the world, been seen by hundreds of millions of people on television, sold 2 million of their approximately 100 albums worldwide and contributed nearly 600 new works and arrangements to the brass quintet repertoire. The first brass ensemble to tour China and the first to play the main stage at Carnegie Hall, they are almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today.

The musicians in the Canadian Brass are group founder and tuba legend Chuck Daellenbach, Caleb Hudson and Christopher Coletti (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Bernhard Scully (horn).
