Brassroots: Inspiring a love of music
Brassroots strives to cultivate the London area community’s knowledge and appreciation of music by presenting a wide range of musical works, with a special focus on showcasing Canadian composers and arrangers.
Brassroots engages in exciting artistic collaborations with a diverse variety of musical ensembles and artists in our community. Along with our regular concert season Brassroots frequently performs as guest artists throughout Southwestern Ontario at concert series, conferences and churches. As well the ensemble performs for not-for-profit and charitable organizations.
Brassroots is deeply committed to encouraging the development of young brass players, through our Junior Brassroots ensemble. In addition Brassroots has held three youth brass competitions.
Brassroots accepts a limited number of out of town engagements each year. We are available to perform full length concerts or to collaborate with other groups. Brassroots is especially suited for collaboration with choirs having provided accompaniments for many of the well-known compositions for choir and brass either for individual instruments, quintets or chamber ensemble.
