We are Hogtown brass


Hogtown Brass is a  chamber ensemble comprised of accomplished and diverse musicians from a variety of musical backgrounds. Known for their unique arrangements and new compositions, collaborations with vocalists and instrumentalists, along with an affinity for both standard and non-traditional performance spaces, Hogtown Brass is on a mission to reinvigorate the classic brass ensemble.

Hogtown Brass is committed to presenting unique concert experiences, as well as entertaining and informative educational programs. Equally dedicated to performance and education, they are experienced in presenting music to people of all ages in a variety of settings including workshops, masterclasses, and residencies.

Being strong advocates for the creation of new Canadian repertoire, Hogtown Brass has commissioned and recorded several new works from composers such as Kevin Lau, Cait Nishimura, and Samuel Bisson. Some of these have been made possible with generous support from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, FACTOR, and the Canadian Music Centre.
