Mnozil Brass YES YES YES
Back by popular demand! Founded in 1992 by graduates of the Vienna College of Music, Mnozil Brass, dubbed the “Monty Python of the music world,” routinely combines humor with impeccably accomplished musical performances in their new show, Yes, Yes, Yes. Though regarded as seriously talented musicians, the members of Mnozil Brass make a living out of not taking themselves too seriously.

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 Russia, 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 travelled countless miles to hear them play.
The group returns to North America with a brand new show. Yes! Yes! Yes! premiers on the heels of the group’s 20th anniversary and seamlessly blends original compositions with classical favorites, jazz standards, and popular hits. As always, the repertoire is presented with the group’s iconic humour and wit in scenes so clever that they would be worthy of Monty Python.
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!).
