Maple Leaf Brass Band

The Maple Leaf Brass Band is a group of over thirty professional-calibre musicians based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s capital city. Their music has been described as “a big, glorious sound that needs no amplification.”

While we are steeped in the British brass band tradition, the band’s repertoire spans several centuries of music and several continents. We play pieces from many countries and in many styles.

Our mandate includes developing a collection of Canadian works. We’re proud to say that our library has many pieces by a wide range of Canadian composers including new works written expressly for the band by resident band-member composers.

The band was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in December, 2000.
