Hogtown Brass Quintet is absolutely thrilled to be heading to the beautiful City of Guelph to be a part of the 2018 Fall Season with the Guelph Connections Concert Series.
This concert series of fine chamber musicians offers, free of charge, short one-hour late afternoon programs featuring various combinations of duos, trios, quartets and more. Some of the groups are well established with noteworthy reputations, others are now building their stellar careers, and still others are professional musicians who simply want to play with each other for the thrill of exploring new repertoire or revisiting old favourites. All the concerts are accessible, classical repertoire.
The concerts are casual, not at all stuffy and all are warmly welcomed. Thanks to the free-will donations and the support of patrons these concerts are free and always will be free. The musicians want to ensure that anyone and everyone who desires can be up close and personal to the live music experience.

Hogtown Brass Quintet is excited to kick off the #ClassyAF 2017 Season at The Dakota Tavern in downtown Toronto.
#ClassyAF is a new concert series bringing classical music out of the concert hall and into the bar. Because we like tacos. And drinks.
Classical musicians in Toronto are building a great culture of concerts outside of the traditional concert hall, and #ClassyAF is joining the front lines, bringing classical music to unclassical places.
Hogtown Brass Quintet is putting on a fundraising concert to help us travel to Nova Scotia to perform a Showcase at the Contact East 2017 arts conference.

Strauss - Fanfare for the Vienna Philharmonic
Gabrieli - Canzon duodecimi toni à 10
Björk - Overture
Teehan - Red Tango
This is a Pay-What-You-Can event.

SONG is a musical community where kids can learn, create, and be part of a team. Participants sing in choir and play in a violin ensemble several times each week. All instruments and music are provided free for the participants thanks to the generosity of donors, sponsors, and volunteers. All the kids need to bring is their enthusiasm and curiosity!
Hogtown Brass Quintet and Dialectica Saxophone Quartet push the boundaries of their traditional ensembles with an innovative and entertaining program in this free concert presented by TD Toronto Jazz Festival.
With equal parts jazz-trained and classically-trained saxophonists, Dialectica attempts to find an aesthetic truth through the discourse of these two musical points of view, akin to the Dialectic method of philosophy found in Plato’s Socratic Dialogues. Tackling philosophical inquiries even Socrates himself couldn’t foresee:
-Can a current Canadian identity be found where the lineages of European art music and North American art music meet?
-Can the saxophone occupy a space in the collective unconscious that lies beyond that of Careless Whisper and Baker Street?
-Can the world handle more than one female saxophonist in one place?
Hogtown Brass are so excited to get on stage at one of Toronto's most well-known jazz venues to open for two extraordinary musicians.
Legendary sax-man Pee Wee Ellis and Canadian global-roots visionary Jason Wilson are once again teaming up for a special night at Hugh’s Room. Ellis was an essential part of James Brown’s band and later served as Van Morrison’s bandleader. Pee Wee co-wrote ‘Cold Sweat’ with Brown, as well as several other instrumental hits. Jason Wilson is a two-time Juno-Awards nominee who fuses reggae with jazz and folk. He has recorded with artists such as Dave Swarbrick, UB40, Jackie Mittoo and Ron Sexsmith. Together, Ellis and Wilson’s funky-reggae mix has charmed audiences across Canada, the UK and Jamaica.
