Festive Brass 2011 a Success!

Thank you to all who came out last week to our Festive Brass 2011 concert! It was a definite success with one of our largest crowds yet and a good dose of festive tunes to usher-in the Holiday Season. The Centretown Emergency Food Centre received donations at the concert which exceeded $1,000 and were matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor. What a wonderful way to show your support for the Centertown community.

On behalf of Capital BrassWorks, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And don’t forget to set aside some time on May 1, 2012, for our French Festival concert!

Early Festive Cheer

Canada’s National Art Center Orchestra (NACO) has been on an Atlantic Canada Tour since November 13. Many Capital BrassWorks members are also part of NACO and are therefore on tour at the moment. Despite a busy concert schedule, they still managed to find time for a little fun backstage at the Arts and Culture Centre in St. John’s Newfoundland.

Here are a few members showing off their festive cheer in a wonderful picture taken by their good friend Fred Cattroll during intermission:

We hope you’ll be able to join them and the rest of the group at their up-coming Festive Brass 2011 concert on the evening of November 30th. It’s a great way to usher-in the Holiday Season!
