More info on this soon! Sound the trumpets! Ron Davis and SymphRONica are reuniting with the badass Hogtown Brass Quintet. This one-of-a-kind jazz + strings + brass collaboration blew the roof off the Lula Lounge in 2015. Now they’re back together for everything from standards to world to pop to Christmas music. Not to be missed!
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.
As part of this SPECTACULAR show, we will be hosting a few of our colleagues as part of a larger brass ensemble (conducted by Dylan Maddix), playing some of our favourite brass rep, including:
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.
HBQ would like to recognize the support of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music in making this event possible.
The HBQ is thrilled to be able to support SONG - Sounds of the Next Generation, in Cobourg, ON.
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.
