On Sunday afternoon, December 6, 2015, the 1st Nebraska performed before a large and appreciative crowd at the Durham Western Heritage Museum. Each year the museum decorates a huge Christmas tree and places it in the Great Hall. Then on successive weekends the museum sponsors community music groups to perform before the visiting crowds.
The museum is housed in the former Union Pacific Railroad passenger station in downtown Omaha. It has incredible architecture and certainly makes an big impression. As you view the photos be sure to look at the ceiling details.
The basement of the museum houses several pioneer days displays and a huge HO model train layout. It’s worth the visit just to see the trains.
We enjoyed serenading the public with several modern brass arrangements of favorite hymns and carols, and will repeat the program for the Elk Ridge Villages senior centers this Saturday.
