  1. From Traditional classics to well-loved movie themes, the Rideau Lakes Brass Quintet will demonstrate the highest technical and musical demands made on today’s brass players! Offenbach’s high-spirited Can Can and John Williams’s triumphant Star Wars theme are among the brilliant works that you’ll hear from members of the brass section of the NAC Orchestra. The performance is certain to be a magnificent feast for the ears!

  2. From the classic and sophisticated Jazz standard “I Got Rhythm” to the witty and irreverent Beethoven’s Fifth Bossa Nova-which, thankfully for Beethoven’s sake, was arranged long after his death – these five versatile wind players, along with percussionist Kenneth Simpson, will showcase popular dance styles through the ages including ancient Hungary and Spanish Tango. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!

Led by renowned Fana Soro, the performance is a feast of traditional songs, stories, athletic dance and absolutely stunning musicianship.
