SHIPPENSBURG: The H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University Presents Mnozil Brass “Cirque”
February 12 @ 7:30 pm
Mnozil Brass has established itself as one of the world’s premiere brass ensembles. With over 130 performances a year, the group has sold out houses from the farthest reaches of the European continent to Israel, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Canada, and the United States, and has captivated audiences with their blend of immense virtuosity and theatrical wit. No wonder their videos have garnered millions of YouTube views and their fans have traveled countless miles to hear them play.
Mnozil Brass take their name from the “Gasthaus Mnozil,” a restaurant across the street from the Vienna Conservatory, where, in 1992, seven young brass musicians met and began playing at a monthly open-mic. Since then, the group has embraced repertoire for all ages and stages of life: from folk to classical to jazz to pop; all executed with the same fearlessness, immense technical skill, and typical Viennese “schmäh”
(almost impossible to find an English translation, but best rendered as a kind of sarcastic charm!).
In their time away from touring, Mnozil Brass has recorded 8 albums and 6 DVDs. They’ve collaborated on three operetta and opera productions, and composed and recorded the music for the 2006 film “Freundschaft.” The group has been nominated for the Amadeus Austrian Music Award and won the prestigious Salzburger Stier Cabaret Prize in 2006.
Mnozil Brass will be exploring the depths of their instruments once again to entertain you in the brand new show, “Cirque”. Entering the ring to combat the monkey business of daily life with music and humor, and transforming the stage into a musical flea circus…Come one! Come all! Listen and be amazed!
Mnozil Brass are decisive and strong believers that the earth is round, and diligently go out of their way, traveling the globe on a mission and with the firm intention of bringing their Elysian style of music and laughter to the rest of the world.
