The Copper Street Brass Presents our
2016-2017 Concert Series

About Our Series

"If you missed The Copper Street Brass Quintet last week then you missed a lot...they blew the roof off the place!"

Faulk County Register

Copper Street Brass’s 2016-17 Twin Cities Concert Series features three fun, entertaining, and diverse shows. “Sounds of the Cinema” in October 2016, “Christmas on Copper Street” in December 2016, and “British Invasion” in March 2017. This concert series highlights the CSB’s unique music at various venues around the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. These concerts are designed to highlight the versatility of what we do as the Copper Street Brass, from classic movie music to familiar holiday tunes to pop and rock music of the Beatles and the Who.

The music arrangements we create allow us to perform not only on brass but also on piano, guitar, drums, and electronics to connect with our audiences and highlight each concert’s unique theme. Whether it’s music for movies, a holiday concert, or an tribute to music from overseas, there’s something for everyone!

What People Say About our Concerts

Thank you for the outstanding performance!  People are still talking about it!  Words cannot effectively describe the joy and high musicianship we experienced with the concert by The Copper Street Brass.  The program had ultimate variety and musicality, and was enjoyed by all who attended.

What People Say About our Concerts

Beyond good stage presence and an engaging rapport with the audience, this group is seriously good. The ensemble is tight, and pitch-perfect. Everyone blends well, and it is clear the musicians enjoy playing together.

The CSBQ can do it all. From in your face Tower of Power-style aggressive brass virtuosity to subtle symphonic nuance, The CSBQ delivers.
