The Jenny Lind Polka was written in 1846 by Allan Dodworth. This arrangement is scored for Civil War Band.

Jenny Lind was known as the “Swedish Nightingale.” She was an opera singer who made her fame on the German and English stages. In 1850 P.T. Barnum signed Lind to a 92 concert concert in America. She was so popular that when her tour was completed, she continued another 2 years under her own management.

1NVBB had a great rehearsal on Sunday afternoon, March 8. After all our cold weather this weekend is a breath of fresh, and warm air. 60s!!!!!!

We had some new members attend rehearsal today, and they are all very good players. Following rehearsal we were able to fit uniforms for Bb Cornetist Stephen Mattos, Eb Tubist Josh Calkin, and his wife, Percussionist Lauren Calkin. Because of the nice weather we were able to take their photos outside.
