In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, the Nebraska Brass will release its fifth compact disc, entitled Nebraska Brass 25, on Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
This much anticipated volume will be available for purchase at each performance of "A Nebraska Brass Christmas," just in time for the holidays. This disc of transcriptions and original works for brass quintet includes traditional repertoire by Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Claude Debussy, Léo Delibes, Charles Gounod, Joseph Horovitz, Claude Le Jeune, Scott Joplin, Anton du Preez and Sergei Prokofiev, as well as contemporary favorites by Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
Now in its 25th Anniversary season, the Nebraska Brass includes members Dean Haist, trumpet; Brad Obbink, trumpet; Richard Ricker, horn; Mark Mendell, trombone; and Ken Kielniarz, tuba. In addition to performing five sets of concerts each season, the Nebraska Brass provides educational outreach to elementary school students through its Brass Goes to School program and tours throughout Nebraska as part of the Nebraska Touring Program through Nebraska Arts Council.
Nebraska Brass 25 retails for $15 per copy. Orders may be paid by credit card or check through the Nebraska Brass business office. Cash orders may be processed at the ticket desk at one of our concerts or in person at the Nebraska Brass business office.
For the first time, Nebraska Brass will release their recording project on a global scale through online retailers for both streaming and download. Be sure to look for Nebraska Brass 25 on Rhapsody, Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Medianet and 7Digital.
