Foothills Brass Quintet

Foothills Brass is a group of five versatile musicians from across Canada. Founded in 1981 in Calgary, this superb Canadian quintet is dedicated to exceptional artistic presentation, meaningful educational activities, and innovative leadership in the artistic community. Foothills Brass presents up to 150 events each year in. Their motto is serious fun.

Foothills Brass has toured to all provinces and the territories, through the USA, and overseas. Their repertoire ranges from Renaissance to ragtime, Bach to the Beatles, with a healthy dose of jazz, Dixieland, blues, and even some country classics!

As well as theatre concerts and a wide variety of special events, the quintet performs educational concerts in schools, with programs for all grades. To date they have played for more than one million students.

Foothills Brass has produced six CDs—the most recent is Stampede, with a western flair!
