Internationally-acclaimed trumpet player, Jens Lindemann, presents “Brassfire” - an epic, energized concert experience highlighting the history of trumpet music. Jens performs timeless classics from Bach and Vivaldi to Louis Armstrong and Dizzie Gillespie. With his exceptional musicianship and sensitivity, Jens explores the full emotional range of the trumpet, from lyrical haunting melodies to the blistering bravado of Maynard Ferguson, all delivered with the showmanship of his childhood hero Doc Severinsen.

Jens Lindemann is a German born Canadian trumpet soloist now based in Los Angeles, where he is a professor of trumpet at UCLA. He is the first classical brass soloist to be awarded the Order of Canada. He played in the Canadian Brass from 1996 to 2001 and continues to play at major concert venues all over the world as an orchestral soloist, with chamber groups, jazz bands, and as a master clinician.

Named "Personality of the Year 2006" by the British magazine The Brass Herald, Lindemann also hosted the 33rd International Trumpet Guild conference at the Banff Centre in June 2008. Lindemann studied at the Juilliard School of Music, McGill University, and has received an honorary doctorate from McMaster University. Among numerous distinctions, he has been a nominee for a Grammy award and a Juno Award and received the Echo Klassik in Germany. As part of Alberta's centenary celebrations in 2005, he gave a solo Command Performance for Queen Elizabeth II.
