Five tremendous brass musicians – each a virtuoso in his own right – form the legendary Canadian Brass. Friends Chuck Daellenbach (tuba) and Gene Watts formed a brass quintet in 1970, not knowing its impact on the musical scene over the next 42 years. They will perform in a Bill Edwards Presents concert at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N, St. Petersburg, on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m.Chamber music for brass was not new, but this group, called “The Kings of Brass,” has amassed a vast repertoire from Renaissance and Baroque masters to marches, holiday favorites to Dixieland and jazz to Broadway, creating their own musical world by transcribing, arranging and commissioning more than 200 works.Canadian Brass is Chuck Daellenbach, Christopher Coletti and Brandon Ridenour (trumpet), Achilles Liarmakopoulos (trombone) and Eric Reed (horn).Tickets are $29, $39 and $49 and may be purchased online at TheMahaffey.com, charge by phone at (727) 893-7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office, open Monday-Saturday, 9:30am-5:30pm; Sunday, 11:30am-5:30 pm, or day of, at least 90 minutes prior to any ticketed event.
