Toronto Mozart Players Present: Brass by Alec Wilder

Church of the Redeemer

December 03, 2017

2:00 pm

Alec Wilder (1907-1980), was an American composer whose original style fuses jazz, American song and European classical forms and techniques. His chamber music for brass is inventive, touching, beautifully crafted and thoroughly entertaining! While he didn't reach the fame and wealth of George Gershwin his musical expression similarly blends popular and classical styles and bridges musical communities.

The Toronto Mozart Players are proud to present these superb brass players from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in this unique program:

Steven Woomert, trumpet
James Spragg, trumpet
Audrey Good, horn
Vanessa Fralick, trombone
Mark Tetreault, tuba
Rachael Kerr, piano

Program: Music for Brass by Alec Wilder

Suite in Three Movements for trumpet and piano 
Duet for horn and improvised percussion 
Suite No. 1 for tuba and piano “Effie”
