The Trillium Brass Quintet (Canada)

Formed in 1996, The Trillium Brass Quintet (Toronto, Canada) is a versatile and tightly knit ensemble. From renaissance vocal works to Charles Ives and the premières of new music, Trillium performs not only the traditional repertoire, but also explores the wide diversity of music available to the modern brass quintet.TBQ has performed throughout southern Ontario including recital appearances at The Kitchener-Waterloo Music Society, the Toronto International Chamber Music Festival, and University of Toronto's New Music Week. We were also the first musicians to play our national anthem inside the Ontario Legislature.

TBQ's versatility and wide repertoire allows us to present music to suit any occasion or venue - from official receptions, convocations, and corporate gatherings to sacred and secular festive events. Some of our hired engagements have included receptions for the Lieutenant Governor, and somewhat less formal but very festive appearances at Massey College for their Christmas Gaudy. Amongst the number of churches at which we have played, our appearances at St. James' Cathedral include annual celebrations of the New Year's Bishop's Levee, which feature jubilant brass and organ music, and hymn settings custom made for that grand acoustic.
