WAYNE – Week two of Bressler-Fest should fill the park with the wonderful sounds of brass music played by the 34 musicians of The Nebraska Brass Band. The concert will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Sunday at Bressler Park.
The Nebraska Brass Band was an idea that was conceived over lunch at a Runza restaurant. It is a British-style brass band. A wide variety of people make up the band including teachers, military personnel, medical doctors, attorneys, and more. The musical director of the group is Glenn Greet of North Yorkshire, England. Greet is a former British Police Officer and now resides in La Vista, NE and is a Human Resource Director. He has much experience in the music industry acting as a teacher, conductor, and tenor horn player. He has played at Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall, The Barbican, Westminster Abbey, the BBC’s Broadcasting House, Abbey Road, and several more venues across North America.
The band has a unique sound capable of playing whisper soft passages and power fortissimos. Musical styles to be featured include original symphonies, jazz, Broadway music, solo concertos, and more. The band official performed their first concert on October 5th, 2017 to a sellout crowd. In the future the band plans to record a Christmas CD, have a tour to Mr. Rushmore, and form a Nebraska Youth Brass Band.
Checkout The Nebraska Brass Band on Sunday from 6-8 p.m. at Bressler Park for the second week of Bressler-Fest.
