Join us for this very special concert event .....



As a gift to the community, the Kelowna Community Concerts Association is partnering with Festivals Kelowna to present a FREE special concert event in celebration of Canada's 150th Birthday - The Canadian Brass Canada 150 Concert.

Internationally renowned masters of concert presentations, The Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. Their concerts will show the full range from trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them – from formal classical presentation to music served up with lively dialogue and theatrical effects. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun – but never at the expense of the music:

With a discography of over 130 albums and an extensive world-wide touring schedule, Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere. With four decades under their belts, Canadian Brass continues to thrill audiences around the world – and they don’t look like they are letting up anytime soon!

6:00 - 6:45 Neville Bowman Trio

7:00 - 9:00 Canadian Brass

A very special thank you to our partners at the Kelowna Community Concerts Association for bringing this magical event to Kelowna.
