Many thanks to Elaine, of Musical Assumptions, for drawing my attention to the group tenThing brass ensemble. This group of ten women plays pretty darn well, if you ask me. (Of course I’m just an oboist … what do I know?)

(Somehow I’m guessing they are “mouth syncing” here … they really wouldn’t be playing out in the freezing cold, would they? With mittens on?)

  1. It does look to me like they’re faking in the video, and they do sound very good (the Carmen arrangement reminds me of the Canadian Brass version). I’m intrigued by some of the instruments though – it looks like a single horn (vs. a double horn), which is surprising, and I can’t figure out if those are trumpets or cornets, exactly.
