Mnozil Brass "Cirque" posterStarting off the spring semester, Mnozil Brass is back by popular demand as the ring leaders in their new show, Cirque, at Fisher Auditorium, located in IUP’s Performing Arts Center on Monday, February 11, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. as a part of the 2018–19 Ovations! series presented by the Lively Arts at IUP.

The talented musicians of the Mnozil Brass mingle music with monkey business in their new production Cirque that will be touring the States.  With over 25 years of mastering their artform, Mnozil Brass will entertain audiences with their signature brand of whimsy and musical artistry.

From their humble beginnings, Mnozil Brass started their career in Austria playing open mics. The restaurant where they performed, Gasthaus Mnozil, served as inspiration for their name. The septet has developed a unique style that has been loved all over the world. Their YouTube videos have millions of views, and they have performed on stages across the globe. Over the span of their career, the brass group has recorded eight albums, collaborated on three operas, and produced music for the 2006 film Freundshaft. Mnozil Brass has over 130 performances a year, and IUP is fortunate to be one of the 10 stops in the United States.
