The Chestnut Brass Company was a true delight. The concert possessed that elusive balance of technical virtuosity as well as beautiful artistry, fascinating historical information and contexts as well as new music, and the perfect dose of good humor and charm. In addition, the members of CBC were highly professional and personable, engaging with their audience both during and after the concert. Obviously, they love what they do and our audience loved them!
