The History of Music at Venables Theatre
The History of Music is a fabulous theatrical odyssey that travels through space and time at a thrilling tempo to explore the music of the Western world from pre-historic times to the present day. The show is bursting with energy and combines astounding originality with extraordinary musicianship along with a brassy humour all its own.
In The History of Music, an actor helps create the complicity between Buzz’s five musicians and the audience. From the outset to the very end, all find themselves captivated by the rich and colourful theatrical staging that is perfectly integrated with the music. And everything is entirely performed from memory—no music stands in sight to hinder the spontaneity!
Over the past years, Buzz Brass has presented The History of Music show more than 700 times, in 3 languages on 3 continents, gaining rave reviews from teachers, students and journalists alike, in addition to winning numerous awards and accolades.
