The Canadian Brass performed their Tribute To The Ballet at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto Canada in 1988.

I had completely forgotten about these guys! A trip down memory lane. :)

That was lovely. I miss gentle whimsy.

I don't miss low definition video or the fact that all the performers were male.

If you like your brass ensembles whimsical but with fewer dudes, I give you Genghis Barbie.

I heard their Tribute to the Ballet on NPR when I was a kid, and it just killed me that I couldn't actually see the performance. Had almost forgotten about it but hippybear's post on PDQ Bach, for some reason, made me think to check YouTube.

Then all I need to do is mention "Flight of the Bumble Bee" and the knowing among you should grin in childlike delight at that silly little toy trumpet.

If the Canadian Brass did not exist CBC would have had to invent them.

That is all.
