True North Brass

TRUE NORTH BRASS burst on to the scene in 1997, and has since solidified its reputation as one of the world’s finest brass ensembles. With a roster of some of Canada’s finest brass instrumentalists, True North’s membership includes two outstanding composer / arrangers who create the ensemble’s fresh and unique programming. Proudly Canadian in focus and expression with a truly international outlook, True North Brass has been welcomed not only in Canada but in China and throughout North America. True North Brass has released four critically acclaimed recordings, been featured on CBC Television’s Opening Night program, is heard frequently on public and private radio and collaborated on other recording projects with such artists as the Elmer Iseler Singers, Rick Fox, Lori Cullen, Eleanor Daley and St. Michael’s Choir School. The ensemble’s most recent recording project is a transcription of Pictures at an Exhibition for brass quintet and organ by J. Scott Irvine.
