Bach, they also perform Purcell, Vivaldi, Gabrieli, Pachelbel, Beethoven and Wagner — all in meticulously crafted transcriptions, but selections from Glenn Miller are not unheard of. Individual tickets to the Canadian Brass performance are $30 and $20 for adults; $23 and $15 for students and senior citizens; and $10 and $6 for ASU students.Tickets may be purchased by calling ext. ASU1 (ext. 2781).
