The Hogtown Brass is a Toronto based chamber ensemble dedicated to pushing the boundaries of traditional brass music. This group of diverse musicians come from a wide range of musical backgrounds from classical to pop to jazz. This performance promises to be a unique concert experience which is both entertaining and informative.
In June 2017, HBQ was a featured performer at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival and in November they released “A Holiday Album, Vol. 1”, featuring arrangements by an all-Canadian roster of composers including RJ Satchithananthan, Christian Overton, and Terry Promane.
In October 2016, they released their debut recording “Introducing…”, featuring brand new arrangements and original compositions for brass quintet in a variety of styles and genres – from Baroque to Latin dance to funk – just a little taste of what HBQ is all about. “Introducing…” was also nominated for a 2017 Toronto Independent Music Award.
