The Intrada Brass is dedicated to furthering the Brass Band tradition in Canada and fostering the development of Canadian-composed music for Brass Band. The ensemble presents three concerts throughout the year and has been working in local schools presenting concerts and workshops for students in all grades. Intrada also presents concerts to local retirement residences through our outreach programs.
In 2019 a ten-piece group performed for 3500 students in Oakville and Milton. During the pandemic, Intrada participated in the Town of Oakville’s virtual Canada Day celebration 2020 and has produced 2 digital concerts. Intrada has also collaborated with other music ensembles and arts organizations in the region such as the Halton/Mississauga Youth Orchestra, Halton District School Board, St. Jude’s Church Choir, McMaster University School of the Arts, Master Works of Oakville and the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre.
