Students to join in ‘Nebraska Brass’ concert here Sunday

Albion Area Arts Council will welcome the holiday season with a concert by the popular brass quintet, Nebraska Brass, this Sunday, Dec. 9 at 3 p.m. in the Boone Central Performance Gym in Albion.
“The Brass” will be joined for the second half of their concert by Boone Central Middle and High School band students to play a selection of favorite Christmas carols.
Founded in 1987, the Nebraska Brass is one of the Midwest’s most popular brass quintets. Audiences young and old enjoy serious musicianship and light-hearted humor as the group presents a variety of music ranging from classical to popular, including Dixieland and jazz.
The Nebraska Brass is comprised of musicians with a wealth of experience in both classical and commercial idioms. Members have performed with ensembles such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Nashville Symphony, Strategic Air Command Band (USAF) and Mannheim Steamroller. In addition, members have toured and performed throughout the United States, Australia, Europe, South America, Japan, and the Caribbean with numerous musical ensembles.
