With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of "the world's most famous brass group." Friends Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts first came together in 1970 to form a brass quintet - a chamber music setting not entirely new, but never before having garnered the success and storied career Canadian Brass would achieve over the next 40 years. Three empty chairs were quickly filled and together, the group's imagination and consummate musicianship elevated the art of the brass quintet to what it is today.
Masters of concert presentations, Canadian Brass has developed a uniquely engaging stage presence and rapport with audiences. Each of their concerts will show the full range from trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them - from formal classical presentation to music served up with lively dialogue and theatrical effects. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity and, most of all, fun - but never at the expense of the music:
Whatever the style, the music is central and performed with utmost dedication, skill and excellence.
With a discography of over 130 albums and an extensive world-wide touring schedule, Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in bringing brass music to mass audiences everywhere. They have sold well over 2 million albums worldwide and they are on the cutting edge of technology offering their fans multimedia airplay, downloads and youtube videos and streaming opportunities as well as digital applications with iPhone and other smartphone carriers. You can find them twittering and on Facebook with their fanbase growing daily!
With four decades under their belts, Canadian Brass continues to thrill audiences around the world - and they don't look like they are letting up anytime soon! Canadian Brass is: founding member Chuck Daellenbach (tuba), Christopher Coletti and Caleb Hudson (trumpets), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Jeff Nelsen (horn).

Created "in furtherance of the musical, literary, artistic and dramatic benefit and enjoyment of the citizens of Chambersburg forever", The Gilmore-Hoerner Endowment is a trust established by William Stenger Hoerner (1867-1935) and his wife, Gail Gilmore-Hoerner (1870-1916). The couple's shared love of the arts and their concern for their community led to the establishment of the endowment. Since 1967, the Gilmore-Hoerner Endowment has sponsored over 50 programs including trips to cultural events, workshops, and performances. Under terms specified by Mr. Hoerner in his will, the Endowment provides artistic and cultural opportunities for the community at remarkably low prices to enable greater participation for all ages, from senior citizens to families with children. While in the past, the Endowment partnered with local non-profits in bringing performances to local stages as well as providing small grants to local arts organizations to enrich their programs and outreach, the Endowment now uses its resources to bring higher-ticket programming to the community while retaining lower ticket prices.
