Introducing the Sackbut
May 18, 2019
Doors open at 6pm, concert begins 7pm
Cappella Borealis, Vancouver’s ensemble for early brass instruments, will introduce the “sackbut” – the ancestor of the modern trombone – and its repertoire. The ensemble will perform a variety of compositions from the Renaissance and Baroque eras that highlight the sackbut’s unique tone colour and technique; in addition, the group will discuss the historical evolution of the sackbut and how it differs from its modern counterpart.
These concerts are generously supported by the Drance Family
