Trillium Brass Quintet
Music Colours Stories – Performance
The Trillium Brass Quintet presents a bright and energetic look at music through the experience of the classic brass quintet (horn, trombone, tuba and two trumpets). Throughout the performance, students hear new songs as well as recognizable favourites, presented by instruments they may have never seen before and learn how melody, rhythm, tempo and harmony combine to colour and enhance ideas and stories.
Brass and Ensemble Fundamentals – Workshop
The TBQ will work with your brass players on playing fundamentals (intonation, balance, rhythm, practice skills) and emphasize an understanding of their role in your ensemble. The company can provide a great variety of brass ensemble music or simply help them succeed at their existing repertoire. Workshops also include specific instrument components. Must be booked with a performance.
