CAPPELLA BOREALIS: INTRODUCING THE SACKBUT

  • St. Anselm's Anglican Church 5210 University Boulevard Vancouver, BC, V6T 1S2 Canada (map)

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. With special guest, Chuck Colburn (cornetto).
