Brass Quintet

Territory represented: Canada (except Québec), USA

Buzz Brass quintet catapults itself under the Big Top to introduce young audiences to classical music. Imagine five musicians taking on the stage to perform the soundtrack for each performance of circus artists. Juggler, magician, tightrope walker, sword swallower, lion tamer and human cannonball are sure to bedazzle one and all! But there are no artists in sight! They’ve deserted the circus, leaving the musicians to their fate: hence their decision to take on the various roles with hilarious results. The show must go on!

This quintet certainly knows how to excite the curiosity of youths of all ages, from elementary-school kids to secondary-school teens, heightening their interest and their understanding of music with shows that are as entertaining as they are educational.

A teacher’s manual accompanies each of the shows. It allows teachers to first prepare the students for the show’s theme, and then serves as a guide to review with students what they have learned.
